Edge conclusion glaucoma: Also called intense or incessant edge conclusion or thin edge glaucoma, this kind of glaucoma is less basic in the West than in Asia. Poor waste is caused in light of the fact that the point between the iris and the cornea is excessively thin and is physically hindered by the iris. This condition prompts an unexpected development of weight in the eye.

In open-point glaucoma the depleting edge itself is amplified to control eye weight.
In point conclusion glaucoma the laser makes a gap in the iris to open up and improve the progression of watery liquid to the channel.
In agonizing late-organize glaucoma medicine or medical procedure don’t control the weight. The laser shuts some watery liquid creating zones in the eye and brings down the eye weight.
Usable Surgery (Trabeculectomy)
