Treatment for Glaucoma


Although doctors are constantly discovering new treatments for glaucoma, the traditional methods of treatment are still safe and effective and may be preferable depending on your condition.


Develop a Plan

Your treatment plan is an ongoing “prescription” that may include innovative technology as well as traditional drugs and procedures to provide you with the best care possible in treating your glaucoma. Ask your ophthalmologist about which treatment is right for you.

Glaucoma Medications

Medications, including eye drops and pills, are often prescribed as part of a glaucoma treatment plan.

Laser Treatment Options

Laser surgery has become a desirable option as an intermediate glaucoma treatment between medications and traditional surgery.

Surgical Treatment

There is no cure for glaucoma, but there are several options for conventional surgical treatment when medicated eye drops and laser surgery do not remedy the intraocular pressure (IOP) associated with the disease. Options include traditional surgery methods and minimally invasive surgery procedures. The type of surgery your doctor recommends will depend on the type and severity of your glaucoma as well as the general health of your eye. Ask your ophthalmologist about which surgery option is right for you.

Traditional Glaucoma Surgery

When medicated eye drops and laser surgery do not remedy intraocular pressure (IOP), your doctor may recommend conventional glaucoma surgery.

Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery

Doctors and researchers are constantly creating new and innovative treatment methods combining the newest technology, enhanced surgical methods and breakthrough drugs to normalize intraocular pressure and manage your glaucoma.
