Abstract and Introduction

Introduction

The California Technology Assessment Forum (CTAF) was asked to assess the evidence for the use of aqueous shunt devices for the treatment of glaucoma. Glaucoma is primarily treated with eye drops and then laser therapy when eye drops fail. Surgical intervention, including the use of shunts, is usually reserved for patients who fail therapy with eye drops and lasers.
