When will I start to see glaucoma treatment results?
We interviewed Dr. Leonard Teye-Botchway to find out what results patients can expect after glaucoma treatment.
Leonard Teye-Botchway: This depends on the type of treatment that you undergo, but essentially, unlike refractive surgery or cataract surgery, glaucoma treatment isn’t a vision-restoring treatment.
The treatment aims to preserve or stabilise vision and prevent further vision loss. There no actual visual benefits immediately after the treatment but treatment benefits are long-term in ensuring that your eye doesn’t lose any more vision.

I am Leonard Teye-Botchway and I am the Medical Director and Consultant Ophthalmologist at Bermuda International Institute of Ophthalmology in Bermuda. The joy and elation I get from seeing patients who are very happy they can see after surgery is almost unimaginable. This is what really drives me to carry on being an ophthalmologist.
