Goniotomy

What is a goniotomy?

Goniotomy is a surgical procedure that consists of accessing the iridocorneal angle through an incision in the peripheral zone of the cornea. Once the surgeon reaches the angle, he cuts a small amount of tissue using the goniotomy scalpel, so that the aqueous humor can be well filtered into the anterior chamber of the eye.

In which cases is it done?

This treatment is performed in patients suffering from congenital glaucoma, a form of glaucoma that occurs in childhood. It is rare (affects 1 in 30,000 live births), but can result in severe and irreversible visual loss if left untreated.

Previous exams

A complete ophthalmological examination is required prior to surgery.

Postoperative

Goniotomy is a surgery that can be repeated if the proper result is not achieved.
