Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a slowly progressive asymptomatic cause of vision loss, until end stage when it leads to irreversible blindness. There are many different types of glaucoma, all of which are associated with damage to the optic nerve, which is usually but not always related to high eye pressure. Medication, laser or incisional surgery are available to slow the progression of glaucoma though currently there is no "cure".

Procedures available at the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford include:

  • Trabeculectomy with Express Shunt
  • Glaucoma Tube Shunt
  • Canaloplasty
  • Trabectome
  • Endocyclophotocoagulation (ECP)
