Dr. Shetty Saves Glaucoma Patient’s Sight With Innovative Surgery

Dr. Shetty inspects Marian Rogers eyes during an eye exam

Florida Eye Specialists is fortunate to be able to give back to patients in need through pro bono surgeries funded by Florida Eye Cares. Marian Rogers has been fighting with glaucoma for decades. While doctors cannot reverse the vision loss in her eyes, Dr. Shetty performed a new technique with the XEN Gel Stent to relieve the pressure in Marian’s eyes and preserve her remaining vision—for free. 

The CDC estimates nearly 50% of patients suffering from glaucoma don’t know they have it. If you or a loved one suffers from glaucoma, don’t wait to seek treatment. 

“If any doctor tells you anything about pressure in your eye, please, please go get it checked out immediately,” Rogers warns.
