Lens-Particle Glaucoma Surgery
If IOP remains uncontrolled despite treatment with medicated eye drops, then surgery may be required to remove residual lens particles. Elevated IOP may improve significantly in response to the surgical removal of any unabsorbed lens material.
A nonsurgical approach may be equally successful in the following cases: small, retained lens fragments can be effectively broken down and reabsorbed; intraocular inflammation and IOP can be acceptably controlled with medications; and the trabecular meshwork is able to completely clear the lens material.
