Your vision, upgraded.

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that can harm your optic nerves, which are the information pathways between your eyes and brain. Glaucoma is almost always caused by an increase in intraocular pressure in one or both eyes. Once this pressure begins to affect the optic nerve, it can cause irreversible blindness. Typically, symptoms do not appear until the optic nerve has been damaged. At Luxor Eye Institute we use different tools to detect eye pressure or optic nerve problems before they cause or worsen vision loss.

How does glaucoma surgery work?

Glaucoma questions? We've got answers.

What are glaucoma symptoms?

Open angle glaucoma (by far the most common type of glaucoma) is one of the few eye diseases without any symptoms. No pain. No redness. No blurry vision until it’s too late. Since early loss of side vision isn’t noticeable, you could be losing a large portion of your vision and not even know it. In this way, glaucoma is like a “thief in the night,” stealing a person’s vision without them ever knowing it. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness among older Americans.

What is the main cause of glaucoma?

The most common cause of glaucoma is a poorly functioning outflow drain of your eye, which subsequently causes high eye pressure, damage to your optic nerve, and loss of vision. Hence laser and surgical treatments serve to either enhance outflow from your existing drain or create a new drain.

How is glaucoma treated?

At this time there is no cure for glaucoma. The only treatment for glaucoma is to lower the eye pressure. There are basically three ways to do this: eye drops, laser treatment, and surgery. Treating your glaucoma protects the vision remaining in your eyes. The purpose of treating glaucoma is to prevent further loss of vision and eventual blindness. Treating glaucoma does not make your vision better.

What is the best glaucoma treatment?

It depends, as every patient’s eyes are unique. Laser treatment and eye drops are typically first-line since they pose minimal risk and may lower your eye pressure to a safe level. Sometimes, however, these first-line treatments are insufficient and surgery is required to either enhance the current drainage system of your eye with Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) or with an incisional surgery that will create new drainage system for you.

Is it possible to have glaucoma and cataracts at the same time?

Many older people have cataracts as well as glaucoma because both diseases are more common with increasing age. If your cataracts are causing problems with your vision and you are taking eye drops for your glaucoma or your glaucoma is very severe, Dr. Kouchouk may recommend performing a minimally invasive surgery for glaucoma and cataracts during the same operation. For many patients, cataract surgery it is an important opportunity treat your glaucoma at the same time and it’s key to have a surgeon with the necessary expertise.

Does insurance cover glaucoma surgery?​

Glaucoma surgery is typically covered by your medical insurance. Copays, deductibles, and coinsurance payments may be included in your out-of-pocket expenses, depending on your insurance plan.
