Trabeculectomy (also known as filtration surgery) is a surgical procedure used to treat glaucoma. Glaucoma is a condition that can result in vision loss due to optic nerve damage. Treatments for glaucoma aim to lower eye pressure, and thus reduce continued damage to the optic nerve. In trabeculectomy, the doctor makes an incision to remove fluid from the eye, thus decreasing eye pressure.
