Laser surgery र incisional surgery [सम्पादन गर्ने]
Although the terms "laser eye surgery" र "refractive surgery" are commonly used as if they were interchangeable, this is not the case. Lasers may be used to treat nonrefractive conditions (e.g. to seal a retinal tear), while radial keratotomy is an example of refractive surgery without the use of a laser.
Types of eye surgeries [सम्पादन गर्ने]
Cataract surgery [सम्पादन गर्ने]
A cataract is an opacification or cloudiness of the eye's crystalline lens due to aging, disease, or trauma that typically prevents light from forming a clear image on the retina. If visual loss is significant, surgical removal of the lens may be warranted, with lost optical power usually replaced with a plastic intraocular lens (IOL). Due to the high prevalence of cataracts, cataract extraction is the most common eye surgery.
Glaucoma surgery [सम्पादन गर्ने]
Glaucoma is a group of diseases affecting the optic nerve that results in vision loss र is frequently characterized by raised intraocular pressure (IOP). There are many glaucoma surgeries, र variations or combinations of those surgeries, that facilitate the escape of excess aqueous humor from the eye to lower intraocular pressure, र a few that lower IOP by decreasing the production of aqueous.
Procedures that facilitate outflow of aqueous humor [सम्पादन गर्ने]
A trabeculoplasty is a modification of the trabecular meshwork. Laser trabeculoplasty (LTP) is the application of a laser beam to burn areas of the trabecular meshwork, located near the base of the iris, to increase fluid outflow. LTP is used in the treatment of various open-angle glaucomas. The two types of laser trabeculoplasty are argon laser trabeculoplasty (ALT) र selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT). As its name suggests, argon laser trabeculoplasty uses an argon laser to create tiny burns on the trabecular meshwork. Selective laser trabeculoplasty is newer technology that uses a Nd:YAG laser to target specific cells within the trabecular meshwork र create less thermal damage than ALT.
An iridotomy involves making puncture-like openings through the iris without the removal of iris tissue. Performed either with standard surgical instruments or a laser, it is typically used to decrease intraocular pressure in patients with angle-closure glaucoma. A laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) is the application of a laser beam to selectively burn a hole through the iris near its base. LPI may be performed with either an argon laser or Nd:YAG laser.
An iridectomy, also known as a corectomy or surgical iridectomy, involves the removal of a portion of iris tissue. A basal iridectomy is the removal of iris tissue from the far periphery, near the iris root; a peripheral iridectomy is the removal of iris tissue at the periphery; र a sector iridectomy is the removal of a wedge-shaped section of iris that extends from the pupil margin to the iris root, leaving a keyhole-shaped pupil.
Filtering procedures: penetrating vs. non-penetrating
Filtering surgeries are the mainstay of surgical treatment to control intraocular pressure. An anterior sclerotomy or sclerostomy is used to gain access to the inner layers of the eye    in order to create a drainage channel from the anterior chamber to the external surface of the eye under the conjunctiva, allowing aqueous to seep into a bleb from which it is slowly absorbed. Filtering procedures are typically divided into either penetrating or non-penetrating types depending upon whether an intraoperative entry into the anterior chamber occurs  .
Penetrating filtering surgeries are further subdivided into guarded filtering procedures, also known as protected, subscleral, or partial thickness filtering procedures (in which the surgeon sutures a scleral flap over the sclerostomy site ), र full thickness procedures . Trabeculectomy is a guarded filtering procedure that removes of part of the trabecular meshwork. Full thickness procedures include sclerectomy, posterior lip sclerectomy (in which the surgeon completely excises the sclera on the area of the sclerostomy ), trephination, thermal sclerostomy (Scheie procedure), iridenclesis, र sclerostomy (including conventional sclerostomy र enzymatic sclerostomy)  .
Non-penetrating filtering surgeries do not penetrate or enter the eye's anterior chamber  . There are two types of non-penetrating surgeris: Bleb-forming र viscocanalostomy  . Bleb forming procedures include ab externo trabeculectomy र deep sclerectomy . Ab externo trabeculectomy (AET) involves cutting from वाहिर the eye inward to reach Schlemm's canal, the trabecular meshwork, र the anterior chamber. Also known as non-penetrating trabeculectomy (NPT), it is an ab externo (from the outside), major ocular procedure in which Schlemm's canal is surgically exposed by making a large र very deep scleral flap. The inner wall of Schlemm's canal is stripped off after surgically exposing the canal . Deep sclerectomy, also known as nonpenetrating deep sclerectomy (PDS) or nonpenetrating trabeculectomy is a filtering surgery where the internal wall of Schlemm's canal is excised, allowing subconjunctival filtration without actually entering the anterior chamber ; it is commonly performed with the Aquaflow® collagen wick . Viscocanalostomy is also an ab externo, major ocular procedure in which Schlemm's canal is surgically exposed by making a large र very deep scleral flap. In the VC procedure, Schlemm's canal is cannulated र viscoelastic substance injected (which dilates Schlemm's canal र the aqueous collector channels).
Other surgical procedures
Goniotomy र trabeculotomy are similar simple र directed techniques of microsurgical dissection with mechanical disruption of the trabecular meshwork   . Gonotomy procedures include surgical goniotomy र laser goniotomy. A surgical goniotomy involves cutting the fibers of the trabecular meshwork to allow aqueous fluid to flow more freely from the eye . Laser goniotomy is also known as goniophotoablation र laser trabecular ablation . In many patients suffering from congenital glaucoma, the cornea is not clear enough to visualize the anterior chamber angle. Although an endoscopic goniotomy, which employs an endoscope to view the anterior chamber angle, may be performed , a trabeculotomy which accesses the angle from the exterior surface of the eye, thereby eliminating the need for a clear cornea, is usually preferred in these instances. A specially designed probe is used to tear through the trabecular meshwork to open it र allow fluid flow .Video
Tube-shunt surgery or drainage implant surgery involves the placement of a tube or glaucoma valve to facilitate aqueous outflow from the anterior chamber . Trabeculopuncture uses a Q switched Nd:YAG laser to punch small holes in the trabecular meshwork with  . Goniocurretage is an "ab interno" (from the inside) procedure that used an instrument "to scrape pathologically altered trabecular meshwork off the scleral sulcus"  . A surgical cyclodialysis is a rarely used procedure that aims to separate the ciliary body from the sclera to form a communication between the suprachoroidal space र the anterior chamber. A cyclogoniotomy is a surgical procedure for producing a cyclodialysis, in which the ciliary body is cut from its attachment at the scleral spur under gonioscopic control.
Procedures that decrease production of aqueous humor [सम्पादन गर्ने]
Certain cells within the eye's ciliary body produce aqueous humor. A ciliary destructive or cyclodestructive procedure is one that aims to destroy those cells in order to reduce intraocular pressure . Cyclocryotherapy, or cyclocryopexy, uses a freezing probe . Cyclophotocoagulation, also known as transscleral cyclophotocoagulation, ciliary body ablation,, cyclophotoablation , र cyclophototherapy , uses a laser. Cyclodiathermy uses heat generated from a high frequency alternating electric current passed through the tissue, while cycloelectrolysis uses the chemical action caused by a low frequency direct current.
