Recent scientific advances in the treatment of glaucoma have resulted in a revolutionary, non-implant form of glaucoma treatment: Micropulse CPC. This laser-based treatment targets the ciliary processes (the natural system within your eye that produces intraocular fluid) to both reduce the output of fluid and open the drainage channels. This innovative treatment can be performed multiple times, does not inhibit you from undergoing surgical procedures for longer-term treatment, and produces a reduction of up to 45% in intraocular pressure.

What is glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases characterized by fluid pressure buildup within the eye. Left undiagnosed and untreated, glaucoma causes irreparable damage to your delicate optic nerve, which can cause:

  • Vision impairment
  • Severe eye pain and headaches
  • Nausea
  • Blindness

It is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide, primarily because it does not produce symptoms until damage has begun to set in. The only way to prevent damage and maintain your vision once glaucoma develops is to identify it early through routine eye exams, and then begin treatment to reduce the pressure immediately.

How Micropulse CPC works

Micropulse CPC is performed using advanced laser technology to provide careful, cyclic heating of the ciliary processes – the same muscles targeted by most medicated eye drops.

This innovative technology allows your surgeon to reduce fluid output while simultaneously improving drainage, with results that can last up to six years with only three re-treatments.

The procedure itself is fairly rapid, taking only an hour or two, and you can expect to resume your usual routines within a week or less after treatment – making this an ideal procedure for those who are not yet ready to undergo more invasive, long-term options.
