i'm having surgical glaucoma surgery on August 10 and am so scared. My eye drops and 2 laser surgeries did not help me. Has anyone else had glaucoma surgery?

    Hi Mary, I hope the surgery went well. I too have had trabs on both eyes after the drops stopped working and my pressure was rising. The surgery itself was fine and not painful.

      Hi Neil

      i had my double trab surgery 2 years ago. Initially my pressures were down under 6, unfortunately one eye is now up at 13 and Im back on drops. I had hoped the surgery would have kept my pressures low for 10 plus years but unfortunately that wasnt the case for me. I dont think there is anything else they can give me to keep pressures down, the drops previously didnt help me, hence I had surgery. Anyone been in this position?
