Yes: I'm excited about future innovations in glaucoma surgery as well new medications ;/or medication delivery systems. We already have newer and safer surgeries like canoloplasty, express shunt, i-stent, and other yet to be approved procedures. Optimistically, the next 10 years should expand our repertoire of glaucoma treatments that can be customized to the patients particular needs.
