ASK DR. DAVID RICHARDSON ❀ πŸ“©

Question Sent via Email:
Hi Dr Richardson, in your opinion, which is better: tube shunt or trabeculectomy? I am left with a decision and neither one looks better to me but from what I had been told, they were my only choices left... Trabectome failed and so did Laser. And drops aren't keeping me in a good number.

Dr. Richardson's Answer:
There is no clear β€œwinner” in the trabeculectomy vs. glaucoma drainage device face-off. Trabeculectomy seems to provide a slightly greater IOP benefit but at the cost of greater risk.

One of the most common Age-Related #Eye Disorders is #Cataract.

For most of our lives, the natural lens is flexible and clear β€” allowing us to focus on objects both far and near. At around age 45 the lens becomes less flexible and loses its ability to change focus. It becomes difficult to see objects up close. Eventually it hardens and becomes cloudy and discolored.
