TrabectomeNew micro-incissional glaucoma surgery

Please note: The hospital is not able to accept NHS referrals from other areas for the present time due to high demand. For private treatment please contact Mr Rossiter's private secretary on 01823 443232. The surgery, known as Trabectome, is carried out under local anaesthetic and takes between 10-15 minutes to perform. Through a small incision in the eye a tiny amount of affected tissue is removed very precisely by an electrical pulse. This allows restoration of the eyes natural drainage pathways without any external scarring. The surgery is only mildly invasive compared with traditional glaucoma surgery and can reduce the need for frequent use of eye drops from which some patients develop side effects.

"The Trabectome procedure can avoid the need for more major surgery, although this will still be necessary for some patients. Any glaucoma patients on eye drops would potentially be eligible for this treatment, although we will initially concentrate on those patients with uncontrolled glaucoma. The procedure often works well when combined with cataract surgery allowing the treatment of the two conditions at the same time. "
