This is an in-office laser procedure to reduce pressure in the eye by using a very focused beam of light to treat the drainage angle of the eye. Before laser treatment, numbing drops will be applied to your eyes. In this method, the laser beam makes several burns that stretch the drainage holes to allow fluid to drain better. The treatment will be scheduled for different days if both eyes need Laser treatment.

the Surgery

This is an incisional surgery, also referred as filtering surgery, which usually is recommended after medicine and laser treatment have failed to control pressure. This is an outpatient surgery and is performed under local anesthesia. In this method, in order to numb your eyes, your surgeon makes small injections around the eyes and then creates a drainage hole using a small surgical tool.
