three line imagesGlaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases in which the optic nerve is damaged leading to irreversible loss of visual field. The optic nerve damage is caused by the raised intra ocular pressure (IOP) although it may occur with normal IOP (Normal Tension Glaucoma) & even with low IOP (Low Tension Glaucoma). The raised intra ocular pressure (IOP) is caused by the imbalance between the production and drainage of aqueous in the anterior chamber of the eye.

What Happens In Glaucoma

Glaucoma causes raised pressure in the eye, which leads to impairment of visual fields and finally vision loss. Contact your ophthalmologist If you have a family history of glaucoma or you observe any signs pointing towards glaucoma to determine the right treatment option for you.

Glaucoma valve is the latest glaucoma treatment techniques which helps in lowering intra ocular pressure and maintains a proper aqueous outflow.This technique is one of the preferred management option in cases struggling with glaucoma even after maximum medications and in complicated glaucoma cases.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

A: Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, which is responsible for transmitting visual information from the eye to the brain. It is often associated with increased pressure inside the eye, known as intraocular pressure (IOP). If left untreated, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss or blindness.

A: Glaucoma is a common eye disease and is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness worldwide. It affects people of all ages, but the risk increases with age. The prevalence of glaucoma varies among different populations.

A: Glaucoma is a common eye disease and is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness worldwide. It affects people of all ages, but the risk increases with age. The prevalence of glaucoma varies among different populations.

A: The two main types of glaucoma are open-angle glaucoma and angle-closure glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma is the most common type and occurs when the drainage angle in the eye becomes partially blocked, leading to a gradual increase in intraocular pressure. Angle-closure glaucoma is less common and occurs when the iris blocks the drainage angle, causing a sudden increase in intraocular pressure.

A: In the early stages, glaucoma usually does not cause noticeable symptoms. It often progresses slowly and painlessly. As the disease advances, symptoms may include gradual peripheral vision loss, tunnel vision, blurred vision, halos around lights, eye redness, and eye pain or discomfort in angle-closure glaucoma.

A: Glaucoma is typically diagnosed through a comprehensive eye examination. The examination may include measuring intraocular pressure, evaluating the optic nerve through dilated eye examination, assessing visual field, and using imaging tests such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) or gonioscopy to examine the drainage angle.

A: There is no known way to prevent glaucoma entirely, but early detection and treatment can help slow down or prevent further vision loss. Regular eye examinations, especially for individuals at higher risk, can aid in the early diagnosis of glaucoma and enable timely intervention.

A: The treatment for glaucoma aims to reduce intraocular pressure to prevent further damage to the optic nerve. Treatment options include prescription eye drops, oral medications, laser therapy (such as selective laser trabeculoplasty or laser peripheral iridotomy), and surgical procedures (such as trabeculectomy or implantation of drainage devices). The choice of treatment depends on the type and severity of glaucoma.

A: While lifestyle changes cannot cure glaucoma, they can play a supportive role in managing the condition. These include maintaining a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise, eating a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables, avoiding smoking, managing blood pressure, and following the prescribed treatment plan, including using prescribed
