In case of glaucoma, surgery is suggested to avoid damage to the optic nerve, when laser therapy or medications are not enough to lower the intraocular pressure.
The most used surgery around the world is Trabeculectomy: its goal is to create an effective drainage channel to be used instead of the affected one, linking the space between the iris and the cornea with the one located underneath a membrane called “conjunctive” that covers the eye.
It is performed with the help of a local anaesthetic and after the trabeculectomy the eye is bandaged and eye drops have to be applied for a few days.
This procedure is effective in curing glaucoma but can lead to complications if not performed in specialized centers for glaucoma, by experts.
Dr. Badalà performs trabeculectomy in Milan and Catania and works together with the Jules Stein Eye Institute of Los Angeles, to develop new techniques for treating glaucoma.
It is very important not to work too hard after trabeculectomy for at least a month because this could cause a sudden fall of the ocular pressure.
After undergoing a trabeculectomy, it is best to avoid physical struggles for at least 30 days, if not advised otherwise by the ophthalmologist.

Problem: GlaucomaSolution: Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, SLT Laser
I am 54 years old, for the past 20 years I have used eye drops to treat glaucoma.
Three months ago, I underwent a new type of laser treatment called SLT (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty), despite always being afraid of ... Keep on reading this reviewany sort of eye treatment.
I have not felt any discomfort during or after the SLT laser, I did it in both eyes together and it lasted about 5 minutes. When the Laser was over I felt much better, as I was a little scared before.
Prior to the SLT laser my eye pressure was 24/23 with different eye drops, now, two months later, is 16/15 without my previous eye drops which created a lot of discomfort.
I am very happy with the outcome.
