At the Benjamin Eye Institute, we perform a variety of glaucoma laser treatments to help our patients manage their condition. These procedures include:

SLT Laser for Glaucoma

Surgery to treat glaucoma

Glaucoma surgery includes a number of procedures designed to lower the IOP by improving the outflow of fluid from the eye. These procedures are sometimes performed solo and sometimes in combination with cataract surgery:

  • Trabeculectomy with or without antimetabolites
  • Placement of glaucoma shunt devices, such as a Barveldt or Ahmed Valve
  • Viscocanalostomy procedure

Penetrating glaucoma surgeries listed here are performed in a surgical center in an outpatient setting. They require close postoperative follow up and care.

Wow, what a huge difference a short 15 minutes makes! Having spent so much of my life helpless without my glasses and inconvenienced by an expensive contacts routine -- suddenly I could see, and with minimal down-time.
