Glaucoma is today one of the commonest causes for irreversible vision loss, particularly in India. Here we make a special effort to detect glaucoma in its earliest stages before it causes a total loss of vision. The Glaucoma Service is staffed by experienced experts whose published studies of glaucoma and its care have been recognized as the most quoted opinions among eye doctors. Our doctors use their vast experience to help the patients choose the best course of treatment from medication, laser treatment or surgery. The doctors also provide evaluations of the diagnosis and the treatment options to the patients.
We perform an extensive array of diagnostic tests aimed at detecting the disease as well as monitoring the response to therapy. These include intraocular pressure monitoring, visual field testing, optic nerve head analysis like OCT. The extensive diagnostic testing process helps the doctor to evaluate the best treatment option. The aim is to choose therapy that is best suited to the individual’s eye and lifestyle. We offer an entire range of treatments right from the non-invasive Nd YAG Laser Peripheral Iridotomy treatment to surgery, depending on the patients’ need and disease profile.
Surgeries for Glaucoma
Nowadays, microinvasive glaucoma surgery is available, including Express Filtration Device, iStent and several others, which have made surgery much safer and predictable.
Glaucoma Family Service
Glaucoma is often an inherited disorder and adverse effects on vision can be prevented by screening and detecting individuals at higher risk. If one of your family members has glaucoma, you need to get yourself screened by a glaucoma expert.
