    Glaucoma

    Glaucoma drainage implant surgery is designed to shunt aqueous from the anterior chamber to a reservoir located at the equator of the eye. It is traditionally used in eyes in which filtering surgery has failed or with types of glaucoma known to be resistant to filtering surgery. The slide shows an eye with a drainage implant. Implants have a 1-year success rate of approximately 80%.
