Glaucoma is a chronic, progressive deterioration of the optic nerve. The goal of glaucoma surgery and treatment is to reduce or stabilize intraocular pressure (IOP). Most cases of glaucoma can be controlled with one or more drugs, but in some cases surgery may be preferred or more effective. Three basic types of surgery for glaucoma include surgery to: increase drainage of fluid from the eye, prevent closure of the drainage angle, and decrease the amount of fluid produced in the eye. In this CME activity, expert ophthalmologists will discuss the latest advancements in the surgical management of glaucoma.
