Dr. Campbell Discusses New Glaucoma Medications

For a long time, ophthalmologists had sort of given up on recovering the drainage functions of the trabecular meshwork of a glaucoma patient's eye.

In the past 18 months, the FDA has approved two new glaucoma eyedrop medications and two types of minimally invasive glaucoma surgeries (MIGS) to restore some functionality of the meshwork, said Anita Campbell, MD, a fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist at Grene Vision Group. She has clinics in Wichita and Hutchinson.

Dr. Campbell has started prescribing both new medications – Vyzulta and Rhopressa – and performing both new MIGS procedures – called the Kahook Dual Blade and the OMNI system – to help reduce intraocular pressure (IOP) in the eyes of her glaucoma patients.
