Glaucoma treatment suitability criteria

Glaucoma is a very complex condition; therefore, to determine your suitability for treatment, you must have a detailed assessment with a glaucoma specialist.

How glaucoma treatment works

Glaucoma is treated by lowering the pressure inside the eye with medication, laser therapy, surgery, or a combination of glaucoma treatments.

Advantages and disadvantages of glaucoma treatment

Advantages

  • Glaucoma treatment helps to lower your eye pressure to prevent damage to the optic nerve.
  • Treatment has a high success rate
  • The most important benefit of glaucoma treatment is that it prevents the eyesight from worsening

Disadvantages

  • As with most treatments, there may be some risk of complication or side effects
  • Treatment cannot reverse the damage done to your vision
  • Even after treatment, you may experience continued changes in the nerve at the back of the eye related to glaucoma

Glaucoma treatment risks

Depending on the type of treatment that I recommend, there may be a risk of complication or side effects. I will discuss these with you in detail at your appointment.

Glaucoma treatment options and alternatives

Eye drops

Eye drops can be used to lower eye pressure. These medications work by reducing fluid production inside the eye or helping fluid drain from the eye. Glaucoma medications must be taken regularly each day to work effectively. Some patients may require more than one type of eye drop. If treatment with eye drops fails to control the pressure in your eye, or you experience side effects from them in the eye, laser treatment and/or an operation may be required.

Laser treatment

Laser treatment uses light to help fluid drain from the eye or eliminate fluid blockage. Medications are used to numb the eye before treatment so there is usually little or no pain. Most lasers take only a few minutes to perform. The type of laser that is right for you depends on your type of glaucoma. Common types of laser include:

  • Laser trabeculoplasty
  • Laser iridoplasty
  • Laser iridotomy
  • Diode laser

Surgery

In some patients with glaucoma, surgery is recommended. Glaucoma surgery improves the drainage of fluid from the eye, lowering eye pressure.

The type of surgery that is right for you depends on many factors including your age, general health, type and severity of glaucoma, eye pressure, and other eye conditions (e.g. cataract). We can discuss the best treatment for you at your appointment.

Glaucoma treatment steps

The glaucoma treatment steps are dependent on the specific procedure that I determine to be most suitable to your needs.

My patients across Northwest England and North Wales are relieved to prevent vision loss from glaucoma

I’ve helped thousands of people in Northwest England and North Wales enjoy a better life without glasses, contact lenses and eye conditions

From my initial consultation through to walking out the door following surgery, I found the whole process to be fantastic and could not have wished for a nicer experience.

Mr SC
I am very pleased to say my eyesight is so much better. I am so delighted that I can see very clearly again, no blurred vision at all. It’s brilliant.
Mrs ML

My vision has improved tremendously, and it’s like having HDTV installed! Once again, many thanks.

Mr PL
I never thought I would describe eye surgery as a pleasant experience, but it was; you are a gifted person. I am sure you have heard this many times before, but the contrast before and after such a short surgery is truly remarkable.
Mr MH
I never imagined the difference it would make, black and grey cows now look black and white! Such an amazing difference. I consider, we, as human beings are very privileged to be able to have this treatment.
Mrs LB
