Around half a million Britons have glaucoma, high pressure in the eye, which can lead to loss of vision. At first they prescribed eyedrops, which I used three times a day to reduce the production of fluid in my eye and increase drainage. But that’s the thing about glaucoma — it’s symptomless until you lose your sight, by which time it’s too late. I am the first eye surgeon in Europe working with another approach, using a goniotome. It washes the eye with fluid to keep its structure and sucks out the debris at the same time.
