Types of Glaucoma Surgery and Costs in Texas

There are many types of glaucoma surgery available in Texas, including special options for patients with cataracts. Usually, surgery is only performed after other treatments have failed. Laser surgery is often indicated for all types of glaucoma, and involves a much shorter recovery time. It is very commonly used when glaucoma patients suffer from cataracts at the same time. This is a generally safe procedure that is performed in an operating room setting. After the surgery is completed, careful check will be done to ensure that eye pressure is at safe levels , prior to release.

In some patients, incisional surgery is required. This is also done in a surgical setting, to ensure safety. The surgery is designed to help improve fluid drainage, which relives pressure on the eye. Patients who have cataracts can also have them taken care of during the same procedure. All of the incisions that are made are tiny, requiring the use of a microscope. Several small sutures are involved, that patients may be aware of for a few days following the surgery. Most patients will be able to start going about their regular routine very shortly.

Some glaucoma patients benefit from implants that are designed to help improve drainage. Sometimes, this is done when other surgical options have not been successful. These implants are designed to help reduce the pressure level. Depending on the type of implant used, it may or may not be slightly noticeable. Instead of improving eyesight, the goal of implant use is to minimize further damage that may impact eyesight. The total healing time after this surgery is about 12 weeks. Many patients with stubborn cases of glaucoma have found some relief after having this sort of procedure done.

Many glaucoma procedures in Texas cost around $5,000. Because this is not done for cosmetic reasons, it will generally be covered by insurance. It's best to check with your insurance provider before having the surgery, to make sure that everything will be covered. Many practices, especially those that perform a high volume of eye surgeries, offer monthly financing plans to help make the surgery more affordable. Most doctors also accept a variety of payment options, including checks and credit or debit cards. These options make things far easier, and help improve the availability of different procedures for patients with vision problems. Patients have been greatly pleased with their results.
