Glaucoma

What is Glaucoma ?

Glaucoma is a disease of the eye which damages the optic nerve.

Optic nerve is respoansible to transmit light to the brain which results in progressive visual field loss. The most important risk factor is raised intraocular pressure. Risk factors for glaucoma include age above 40 years, diabetes, myopia, mature cataract, trauma, certain retinal diseases and a family history of glaucoma. It is commonly caused by obstruction to the drainage channels of the eye. Although infants and children can rarely be affected, glaucoma is more common in the adult population. The raised pressure can cause irrecoverable damage to the optic nerve and can result in permanent loss of vision.

At Smart Vision Eye Hospital the patient is investigated thoroughly with a use of Perimetry, Ocular coherence tomography (OCT) and then the treatment is personalized to the patient to maintain his vision and quality of life.
