Trabeculectomy is considered the gold standard for the surgical treatment of glaucoma. The goal of this surgery is to lower intraocular pressure. It is a specialized procedure involving the creation of a new pathway for the outflow of aqueous fluid from the anterior chamber of the eye. The result is a reduction in intraocular pressure. The trabeculectomy procedure is most often performed under local anesthesia and can be combined with simultaneous cataract removal.
