Glaucoma is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive retinal ganglion cell death and optic nerve degeneration and can be devastating for vision. Therapy can be medical and/or surgical and this lecture will discuss the surgical options for managing elevated intraocular pressure. This has typically been via destructive procedures which damage the ciliary body where aqueous is produced but which have ramifications to overall eye health. The other surgical approach involves placement of a device to allow aqueous to bypass the drainage angle. This lecture will discuss these surgeries and give an insight into modifications that have helped improve success rates to better inform you of the options for your patients.
