Currently, there is no cure for glaucoma. Treatment of this degenerative disease focuses on keeping the intraocular pressure (IOP) low in order to prevent further damage and harming of the optic nerve.

Advanced glaucoma treatment at the Benjamin Eye Institute falls under three distinct categories:

  • Prescription eye drop regimen
  • Laser treatment
  • Glaucoma filtration surgery

Eye drops to treat glaucoma

Eye drops are the most common form of medication for glaucoma. For most, eye drops are applied one to four times a day on a regular schedule. Five types of eye drops are used in modern ophthalmology:

Laser treatment for glaucoma

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

Our in-office Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) laser can help rid glaucoma patients of their dependence on a strict eye drop regimen by reducing their ocular pressure. SLT is a safe and simple in-office laser treatment that effectively reduces the pressure in the eye for most patients with 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.

    I have had dry eyes for a quite sometime and had seen several physicians and got eye drops etc but not until I have seen  Dr. Benjamin I found how serious problem that it was. I had the most thorough and individual attention by Dr. Benjamin. He explained to me my problem and treatment options available. Dr. Benjamin and His staff  are very caring and they spend as much time with you as needed and one feels taken care of. I was given state of the art treatment for my dry eyes and my eyes went from feeling tired , red , scratchy and itchy to brilliantly glowing clear. Office is very serene and staff is attentive, pleasant and smiling. Dr. Benjamin is very down to earth and explains thoroughly that one understands what alis them. I will definitely  keep coming back for all my eye issues.

    I wish I had come to Dr. Benjamin years ago!!!

    I have been hopping around between 3 eye doctors in the last few years complaining of severe eye pain, redness - so bad I haven't been able to wear contacts for a year. Every other doctor made a diagnosis in 2 minutes, prescribed a few things and sent me on my way. Nothing helped and the doctors kept saying my eyes looked fine despite my symptoms. Finally I saw Dr. Benjamin, and he listened to my concerns from top to bottom and did tests the other doctors never did! He made a brand new diagnosis which finally makes sense and fits my symptoms. He spent almost an hour with me which is unbelievable. I am so impressed with this place, even the front desk and other staff were so friendly. I'm so relieved and am looking forward to making a recovery with Dr. Benjamin and eventually getting LASIK.
