Recent Advances in Glaucoma Microsurgery

  • J. Draeger
Conference paper


Microsurgery has added a new dimension to anterior segment surgery. Amazingly enough, glaucoma surgery so far has not benefited too much from the new methods and technologies. This partly may be due to the fact that in glaucoma surgery we do not deal with the transparent media as cornea or lens, but partly also to the change in attitude toward glaucoma treatment generally.
