Fast and Effective Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world, currently affecting over 60 million people worldwide, and estimated to rise to 76 million by 2020 and nearly 112 million by 2040 (Tham, 2014). It is one of the most common neuropathies in the world. In the UK, almost 10% of people over 75 years of age have glaucoma and approximately 6% of UK blindness registrations are attributed to glaucoma in people between the ages of 16 and 64 (Liew, 2014).
