Glaucoma can be treated with eye drops, pills, laser surgery, traditional surgery or a combination of these methods.
Medical treatment: The usage of eye drops and pills is the most common treatment for glaucoma. It is important to take your medications regularly and exactly as prescribed if you are to control your eye pressure.
Nd – YAG laser iridotomy and trabeculoplasty: is an outpatient procedure which is especially useful in narrow angles and angle closure glaucoma.
Conventional surgery: When medications and laser therapies do not adequately lower eye pressure, doctors may recommend conventional surgery. This microsurgical procedure produces good results.
