Would you recommend using a laser for glaucoma surgery?

There are several different types of laser surgery for treating different types of glaucoma. Some types of glaucoma do not require laser surgery and can be treated with medication. Inquiring with the doctor over the case should establish this. If the glaucoma has become severe laser surgery is often the last option before actual invasive surgery. It is rare that there is a loss of eye site due to this type of surgery. It should be noted that this surgery can not return eyesight that has already been lost nor can it cure glaucoma. As such, consistent careful monitoring after the surgery is necessary. This will decrease the chances of severe side effects as well.
