The Glaucoma Clinic has experts who treat patients with conditions that have a poor prognosis, including those who have had unsuccessful glaucoma surgery or have secondary glaucoma, advanced glaucomatous optic atrophy and patients who have vision in only one eye. Congenital and childhood glaucomas are also part of the special expertise.
Our ophthalmologists specialize in all types of glaucoma — congenital, combined mechanism, narrow angle, open angle, and normal tension.
The clinic's diagnostic capabilities include automated perimetry, darkroom prone provocative testing, specular microscopy testing, tonography, pachymetry, optic-disk photography, optic nerve laser scanning, iris fluorescein angiography, A and B scan ultrasonography and ultrasound biomicroscopy.
We offer specialized outpatient procedures such as contact Ng-Yag transcleral cyclophotocoagulation, endocyclophotocoagulation, Argon-laser trabeculoplasty, selective laser trabeculplasty, Yag-iridectomies and laser sclerostomies.
Our experts have extensive experience with surgically implanted valves for glaucoma and offer new approaches to using these devices. Non-penetrating glaucoma surgery also is available.
