Priya Desai, MD, MBA Certified to Perform Trabectome
Priya V. Desai, MD, MBA was recently certified to perform the Trabectome.  Trabectome is a minimally-invasive glaucoma surgery that targets the drainage system (the trabecular meshwork) inside the eye to reduce eye pressure.  The Trabectome lowers intraocular pressure by increasing the drainage of fluid inside the eye.  This surgery can be paired with cataract surgery or can be done as a stand-alone procedure for mild to moderate glaucoma.  Dr. Desai is offering this surgery to her glaucoma patients.
