Glaucoma is a condition where too much pressure within the eye causes damage in the optic nerve, which can result in varying degrees of permanent vision loss. There are few symptoms that indicate the onset of glaucoma, but it has a wide range of causes including disease, eye trauma, surgeries, genetics, and other unexplained reasons. While glaucoma used to be most commonly treated with eye drops, many people want to be free of these costly drops as part of their daily routines. As a result, glaucoma is now commonly treated with surgery as a first line of defense. The doctors at Genstler Eye Center commonly perform these procedures! We’re proud to provide a range of treatment options, they include:
Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) – SLT is a quick and painless laser treatment surgery used as a first line of treatment as opposed to therapeutic eye drops.
Omni – a procedure that can be done independent of cataract surgery or in combination with cataract surgery to reduce pressure in the eye from three points of resistance. For more information visit our partner OmniSurgical.
Glaukos – an all in one glaucoma and cataract procedure using a patented iStent to reduce pressure and reliance on medication. For more information visit our partner Glaukos.
