There are 3 types of Glaucoma Drainage Device (GDD): Ahmed Valve Implant, Baerveldt Tube Implant and Molteno Tube Implant. The plate is positioned on outside of the eye under the conjunctiva, behind the eyelid, and the tube is inserted into the front chamber of the eye. The device drains the fluid out from the eye.
