Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma is generally treated with eyedrops. In suitable patients, Northern Beaches Eye Surgery in Sydney can offer a gentle, non-tissue destructive laser treatment called Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) that can reduce or eliminate the need for drops in treating glaucoma.

In advanced cases surgery can be required to control the eye’s pressure. Dr Genge uses the mini-express glaucoma shunt in these cases to minimize complication risk and improve patient outcomes.
