How is Glaucoma Treated?

The main goal of all types of glaucoma treatment is to lower the intraocular pressure (IOP). This can be achieved using one or a combination of eye drops, SLT(selective laser trabeculoplasty), or in more advanced cases a combination of the two or glaucoma surgery. Laser iridotomy is usually necessary to treat narrow angle glaucoma in addition to eye drops.
