Trabeculectomy

What is trabeculectomy?

Trabeculectomy is a classic glaucoma surgery that consists of creating a window through which the aqueous humor can drain.

In which cases is it done?

Trabeculectomy is performed in order to reduce intraocular pressure, when medical treatment (drops) is not effective and the disease continues to progress.

Previous exams

Before performing trabeculectomy it is important to carry out a complete ophthalmological examination prior to surgery.

During the intervention

Through this procedure, the surgeon will create an outlet for the aqueous humor from the anterior chamber to the subconjunctival space. This surgery can be performed alone or combined with cataract surgery.
