Trebeculectomy Video

>>

This trebeculectomy video shows the operation to relieve Glaucoma, by forming a small channel through the drainage network of the eye.

This structure is called the trabecular meshwork, and it allows fluid - made naturally in the eye - to drain away.

If it gets blocked, pressure will build up inside the eye, pressing on the tiny blood vessels, which supply the optic nerve.

If the optic nerve is starved of blood it will begin to die.

This results in an irretrievable loss of vision.
