Your Vision’s Future Is Clear with Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma Surgery at amaEyes

At amaEyes, our approach to glaucoma surgery is centered around preserving and protecting your vision. This procedure is designed with the utmost precision to reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) within your eyes. By either enhancing the eye’s natural fluid drainage system or creating a new pathway for fluid drainage, we aim to safeguard the optic nerve from damage, thereby ensuring the retention and longevity of your sight.

Types of Glaucoma Surgery


This procedure creates a new drainage pathway for the aqueous humor, effectively reducing intraocular pressure.

Glaucoma Drain Implant

A tiny device is implanted to facilitate fluid drainage and maintain optimal eye pressure.

Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS)

As the name suggests, MIGS procedures are less invasive, offering quicker recovery times and reduced risks.

Post-operative Care and Recovery Expectations

Immediate Aftercare

Upon completing the surgery, you’ll be observed for a short while to ensure everything is in order. We will provide you with an eye shield or patch for protection.

Follow-up Visits

It’s essential to attend all follow-up appointments so we can monitor your recovery, ensure the eye pressure is at the desired level, and address any concerns you might have.


You may be prescribed antibiotics or anti-inflammatory eye drops. It’s crucial to use them as directed to prevent infection and inflammation.

Recovery Expectations

Most patients experience improved vision within a few weeks, but complete recovery might take about a month. During the initial recovery period, avoid strenuous activities and always protect your eye from potential injury.

Potential Side Effects

Like all surgeries, there may be some side effects like temporary blurry vision, redness, or mild discomfort. Always reach out to us if you experience prolonged pain or any unusual symptoms.

Types of Glaucoma

Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma (POAG)

At amaEyes, we recognize the complexity and subtlety of Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma (POAG), the most common form of glaucoma. This condition, often silent in its progression, is marked by a gradual clogging of the drainage canals in the eye, leading to an increase in intraocular pressure without early warning signs. What sets POAG apart, particularly, are its subtypes:
  • Primary Open Angle: The classic form, where the eye’s drainage angle remains open but is functionally obstructed.
  • Pigmentary Dispersion: Here, granules from the iris shed and clog the eye’s drainage channels, leading to pressure elevation.
  • Pseudoexfoliation: This involves extraneous material accumulating on the eye’s lens, which can migrate and block the drainage system.
  • Normal-Tension: It is a unique subtype where the optic nerve sustains damage even when intraocular pressure is within normal limits. The root causes remain a subject of study.
Our focus is not just on the treatment of POAG, but also on its early detection and ongoing management. Our state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and personalized care approach ensure that we stay ahead in safeguarding your vision against the subtle advances of glaucoma

Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma

We recognize the urgent nature of acute closed-angle glaucoma, a condition that stands in stark contrast to the gradual progression of POAG. This form of glaucoma is characterized by a sudden obstruction of the eye’s drainage angle, crucial in regulating intraocular pressure, leading to a rapid and concerning increase in eye pressure.

Indicators that you might be facing a closed-angle episode include:

  • Sudden blurry vision
  • Intense eye pain, which can be accompanied by headaches
  • The appearance of halos or rainbow-colored circles around lights
  • Nausea, sometimes accompanied by vomiting
  • Reddening of the eye

At amaEyes, we emphasize the critical importance of swift intervention in such cases. Our team is equipped and ready to respond to these urgent situations, providing prompt and effective care to preserve your vision.

Signs and Symptoms of Glaucoma

Blurred vision

A haziness that often starts subtly and can progress over time.

Eye pain

A deep, throbbing pain, often accompanied by headaches.

Tunnel vision

A gradual loss of peripheral vision.

Seeing halos around lights

Especially noticeable at night or in low-light conditions.

Reddened eyes

Not to be confused with temporary irritation.

Nausea or vomiting

Often accompanied by severe eye pain.

Vision loss

A gradual decline in the clarity or range of sight.

Risk Factors that Amplify the Threat of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma


Elderly individuals, especially those above 60, are at a heightened risk.

Family history

A history of glaucoma in your family can predispose you to the condition.

High internal eye pressure

Elevated intraocular pressure can lead to optic nerve damage

Thin cornea

A thinner cornea can heighten susceptibility.

Severe nearsightedness or farsightedness

Extreme refractive errors can increase risks.

Past eye injuries

Traumas, even if healed, can pave the way for glaucoma in the future.
