Express shunt surgery
Glaucoma sufferer

United States

#1 Dec 15, 2008
I have out of control open angle glaucoma. I've had trab surgery, which failed because the blebs healed shut. I was fortunate to find a glaucoma specialist in Watertown New York at the Eye Clinic. His name is Shafiq Jivanjee. He's already done one express shunt implant in my left eye and I'm having the second surgery in a few days. I highly recommend this doctor. He's young and really cares. The surgery was almost painless. If you need a good doctor, and real help, go see him. My left eye pressure is now 7, down from 21. I am looking at a future of no eyedrops and am very excited about it after all the years of suffering. Good luck to all
