Very Severe Astigmatism after trabeculectomy

Submitted by GordonWatts on Tue, 05/17/2011 - 5:57pm

Looking for feedback.

I had trabeculectomies done on both eyes (2 weeks apart) about 5 months ago.  My surgery was a success according to the surgeon (no infection,  IOP 10).  The only problem is that I am now left with very severe astigmatism (3.75 in one eye, 5.75 in the other).  My opthamoligist seems clueless (i am looking for a new one).  I have heard that this clears up with time but that is not my experience so far.  Any feedback, suggestions would be appreciated.

Intraocular pressure too low after trabeculectomy

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 10/22/2009 - 6:13pm

I had a trabecelectomy 3 months ago, 3 stitches were lasered afterwards and
my pressure was low, but not too low..since i lost considerable vision in
that eye, my doctor was satisfied..However, the pressure has gone too low and
he is trying a pressure patch, otherwise, suggests surgery to add another
stitch.. Any input??or similar experiences?? I really dont want another
