Private eye treatment: laser trabeculectomy to treat glaucoma

Private eye treatment: laser trabeculectomy to treat glaucoma

Minimal waiting times and high-quality care at your fingertips with care at Midland Eye Clinic

What is trabeculectomy surgery?
A trabeculectomy is a procedure carried out to decrease the pressure inside the eyes of people with high eye pressure or uncontrolled glaucoma. The operation aims to preserve the sight you have reduce the risk of further loss of vision. It will not restore any sight you may have lost or improve your sight however.

What happens during trabeculectomy surgery?
During the operation, the surgeon creates a new channel through the white of the eye (sclera), to allow excess aqueous humour (fluid inside the eye) to escape. When this happens, the amount of pressure within the eye is reduced. The fluid does not leave the eye completely, but will form a small blister-like swelling on the white surface of the eye, usually underneath the eyelid where normally you cannot see it. The fluid can then be reabsorbed back into the blood stream, and does not come onto the surface of your eye. This small blister structure is also known as the drainage ‘bleb’, and remains on the eye’s surface.

Why do I need to have trabeculectomy surgery?
Your eye surgeon may recommend trabeculectomy surgery for a number of reasons, for example:

  • medical treatments, eye drops, or laser, have not controlled your condition properly; and/or
  • eye drop treatment is unsuitable.
  • In some cases trabeculectomy surgery may even be the first choice of treatment. Your doctor will make the decision to operate after assessing your progress and condition.
