Used to lower interocular pressure of open-angle glaucoma, causes pupil to constrict, draws iris away from Cornea allowing drainage out of the Canal of schlemm.
Removal of part of the iris and trabecular meshwork
Aqueous humor "percolates" out of missing iris
Cryoprobe freezes part of ciliary tissue causing local destruction and lowers aqueous production
Acute Angle Closure Glaucoma
- -Oral and IV hyperosmotic diuretics (IV Mannitol, Diamox)
- -Laser peripheral iridotomy (restores drainage of aqueous humor)
- -Miotics (lower intraocular pressure of open angle glaucoma) - Pilocarpine
Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors
interfere with production of carbonic acid, which leads to decreased aqueous humor formation and decreased intraocular pressure
- Dilates Pupil
- Allows more light
