types of glaucoma surgeries
Our team of ophthalmologists at Ticho Eye Associates specializes in medical, laser, and surgical treatments for glaucoma. The most common approaches we use for managing glaucoma include minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), laser therapy, and prescription eye drops. While each of these techniques has its benefits and limitations, they are all designed to reduce eye pressure, preserve the optic nerve, slow disease progression, and maintain optimal vision. During your initial treatment planning session, we can review these procedures in detail and help answer all your questions.
ADVANCED GLAUCOMA MANAGEMENT
Up until a decade ago, patients experiencing moderate to advanced glaucoma had only one option for treatment. Today, there are several safe and effective treatment options to choose from. To learn more about how these therapies can help manage your glaucoma and safeguard your eyesight, contact Ticho Eye Associates. We are conveniently located in Chicago Ridge, IL, Tinley Park, IL, and Munster, IN.
