Current treatment of glaucoma is directed towards control of eye pressure. We can do this by means of eye drops (sometimes tablets for short duration), laser and glaucoma surgery.
For the majority of chronic open angle disease it is controlled with eye drops; when this fails then laser or surgery is contemplated.
For all angle closure disease, a laser is done first. Laser Peripheral Iridotomy helps create a ‘hole’ in the peripheral part of the coloured portion (iris) of the eye, in order to try and open up the drainage angle. Once this is done it is treated like open-angle glaucoma.
