    Glaucoma, Surgical Management

    Dr. Thomas W. Samuelson describes the 5 tools that today's glaucoma surgeon should master:

    1. Phaco surgery, as this alone is shown to lower pressure in glaucomatous eyes
    2. Canal surgery
    3. Superciliary surgery
    4. Transcleral surgery
    5. Cilioablation

    Dr. Samuelson believes that all these procedures are necessary to give patients optimal, individualized treatments that balance the surgical risk with the disease risk.
