ABiC, ab-interno canaloplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to slow the progression of glaucoma and decrease a reliance on glaucoma medications.

To improve fluid drainage and lower pressure within the eye for patients with open-angle glaucoma, a CyPass Micro-Stent can be surgically inserted.

Recovery Time

During cataract surgery, an iStent can be inserted into the trabecular meshwork of the eye for patients with glaucoma to relieve intraocular pressure.

SLT

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) relieves intraocular pressure for glaucoma patients when less aggressive treatments do not produce results.

Recovery Time

If you have refractory glaucoma or had an unsuccessful surgical treatment or medical therapy in the past, we can consult with you for the XEN® stent.

We use the minimally invasive Kahook dual blade in a goniotomy to create an incision in the trabecular meshwork to reduce intraocular pressure.

An Ahmed tube shunt is a surgical intervention to drain fluid from the eye to reduce intraocular pressure and prevent damage to the optic nerve.
