Glaucoma, Surgical Management
Dr. Thomas W. Samuelson describes the 5 tools that today's glaucoma surgeon should master:
- Phaco surgery, as this alone is shown to lower pressure in glaucomatous eyes
- Canal surgery
- Superciliary surgery
- Transcleral surgery
Dr. Samuelson believes that all these procedures are necessary to give patients optimal, individualized treatments that balance the surgical risk with the disease risk.
