Glaucoma is one of the most dangerous diseases that exist in that it is associated with a high risk of producing blindness - or at least a notable decrease in vision - if it is not diagnosed and treated in time.
One of the most effective solutions is surgery. Through the implantation of a valve we manage to control the intraocular pressure, which is the one that directly affects the optic nerve, damaging its structures and ultimately causing total loss of sight.
The surgery lasts a half hour. Once the patient is finished, he goes out with his eye covered but can walk home on his own since he does not need hospital admission. Recovery is rapid and the effects on pressure control are immediate and definitive.
