1. Incision- A tiny incision is made across the chamber of the affected eye.
2. Electro-surgical pulse- Diseased tissue is removed with an electrosurgical pulse.
3. Washout- They eye is washed out with saline to remove tissue debris.

If you know or believe you have glaucoma, schedule a consultation with one of our expert eye care physicians to discuss your options. Call Virginia Eye Consultants at 757-622-2200.
