Trabeculectomy is the procedure that aims to create a new way to evacuate aqueous humor by removing a small segment of trabeculum. Pipe laying is frequent. The tube directs the aqueous humor into a reservoir behind the eye. About 80% of people who undergo this surgery no longer need eye drops afterward.
Other types of surgery are being tested. Eventually, they could replace trabeculectomy. However, it will take several more years before their effectiveness can be determined. Examples include canalostomy, Ex-Press®, canaloplasty, gold implant, Glaukos iStent® and trabeculotome.
It should be noted that all glaucoma treatments increase the risk of developing cataracts, especially surgical treatments.
An antibiotic prescription may be prescribed after the procedure to help prevent certain disorders.
Any surgical procedure involves risks, complications can be minor, hemorrhagic, inflammatory or professional.

Cataract is an eye disease that occurs when the lens gradually loses its transparency. This results in opacification of the lens.
The retina is a membrane that lines the bottom of the eyeball. It contains cells that receive and analyze light signals. The information is then transmitted by the optic nerve to the brain, which reconstructs the image.
Pterygium is a lesion of the eye that appears as a white membrane that develops at the conjunctiva, a protective tissue that covers the white of the eye.
