As with all types of surgery, complications are possible. Every effort is made to minimize risk, but serious or long-term complications can never be fully eliminated. No list of complications can be complete, and any medical, laser or surgical procedure has potential risks, both foreseen and unforeseen. Each patient is different in this regard and you should review any questions and concerns you may have with Dr. Shingleton's surgical team. Our goal is to provide patients with the safest and most successful glaucoma surgery possible. The majority of our patients enjoy protection of their vision following glaucoma surgery with Dr. Shingleton.
