Surgery is normally recommended for glaucoma patients whose eye pressure hasn’t been lowered by eye drops. Or surgery can also be an option if eye drops aren’t stopping the loss of vision. 

The most common type of surgery glaucoma patients will undergo is trabeculectomy – in which a surgeon will create a new opening in the trabecular meshwork to improve the drainage of fluid and reduce eye pressure.
