Is 75 too old for glaucoma medication to be effective? My father was just diagnosed with open-angle glaucoma. If he has laser surgery to correct the problem, will he be at risk of developing the condition again in the future? .
Open-angle: Open-angle glaucoma is a chronic condition for which there is no known cure. The goal of treatment in most cases is to reduce the eye's intraocular or internal pressure. There are many treatment options including laser and/ or eye drop use, which are usually very effective in controlling glaucoma. In some cases, the pressure can be lowered with a laser procedure (selective laser trabeculoplasty or slt), which may need to be performed 1-3 times every 5-7 years and alone can be effective or may require additional eye drop use. Slt laser in recent studies has not been shown to less effective with advancing age. The proper treatment for your father, whether slt, another laser procedure, or eye drop use, depends based on your father's case specifics. Discuss all options and the goals of treatment with your father's ophthalmologist. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer

Better drainage: Intraocular pressure results from the aqueous fluid being prodeuced in the eye and being drained out of the eye. Just as a sink can back up from poor drainage, so can the eye fluid, however, with no place to go the pressure increases. Glaucoma laser treatment (ALT/SLT) helps the fluid drain better, reducing pressure.
Ask the surgeon: You need to ask the surgeon (or his/her office). Costs will vary according to the procedure and the locale where it is done
Not generally: Using a laser to perform cataract surgery is only available in very select practices and is not covered by insurance. Typical cataract surgery is performed using a small blade to make an incision in the eye and ultrasound to remove the cloudy lens. Great results are usually achieved with modern cataract surgery.See 2 more doctor answers
Ask your treating MD: Its not the laser treatment that is the restricting condition. It is the retinal problem and the treatment needed to repair it. There are many different types of laser. Most have no restrictions after them. Some do. Ask your doctor.
LASIK: Is another type of eye surgery in which the cornea is cut. In this procedure a thin segment of the front of the eye is cut with either a surgical blade or a laser. The flap which results is moved out of the way then the underlying corneal tissue is lasered to treat the patient's glasses correction. After this, the superficial flap of tissue is placed over the treated area.See 1 more doctor answer
Laser surgery: Yag capsulotomy uses a laser to clear cloudy vision after cataract surgery. The laser essentially destroys the central portion of the cloudy capsule that causes the hazy vision. It is typical for vision to remain cloudy for up to 1-2 days after the procedure. If it has been longer, or the visionis getting worse, go back to the eye doctor immediately.
