March 19th was a historic day at Virginia Eye Consultants. Dr. Constance Okeke performed the first Ab Interno Canaloplasty (or ABiC) glaucoma surgery in Hampton Roads.
The ABiC procedure is a minimally invasive glaucoma surgery that allow surgeons to flush out the clogged drainage system in people with open angle glaucoma. This process helps restore the natural flow of fluid in the eye, thus lowering eye pressure and protecting the optic nerve for prevention of blindness. The ABiC procedure can be done alone or in combination with cataract surgery.
We’re proud to offer this new level of technology that helps our surgeons provide the very best visual outcomes for our patients.
