Who should I go to if I need Glaucoma Surgery?
Glaucoma is a complex eye disease and is best treated by a glaucoma specialist. A glaucoma specialist is a medical doctor who trains first as an eye surgeon who is adept and skilled in the treatment of all types of medical and surgical diseases of the eye. It is only after this has been achieved that an eye specialist or eye surgeon elects to complete a further course of intensive training for a year or two to gain additional skill and expertise in the treatment of complex glaucoma for both children as well as for adults. Often glaucoma specialists are also specially trained in the care of patients who have cataract as these two conditions often present together and must be taken care of.
