What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a progressive disease of the optic nerve. Most glaucoma cases have elevate pressure inside the eye leading to gradual, silent, permanent loss of vision.
In a small group of glaucoma cases the pressure is normal and disease progresses irreversibly. That is why Glaucoma is called the silent thief of sight. It is the commonous cause of irreversible blindness in the world.
How do you evaluate Glaucoma?
Routine eye checkup, eye pressure, gonioscopy, disk photography, dilated retina checkup and central corneal thickness with pachymeter and central fields to check field of vision.
The cirrus HD-OCT offers the ultimate benefit for people living with glaucoma. Glaucoma is detected 8 years before clinically evident. So early care can be monitored for slightest changes and modified response for treatment implemented.
