Glaucoma is a disorder in which the pressure inside the eye increases beyond the normal limit of 21mmhg causing irreversible damage to the nerve leading to a decrease in vision with eventual blindness. This disease is known to run in families and patients with family history must undergo a regular evaluation with an eye doctor who specializes in that field. We, at Rushabh Eye Hospital and Laser Center, provide a dedicated team of doctors, with years of experience in the field of glaucoma, to help in diagnosing and treating you for the same.
Glaucoma can affect children, as well as adults and patients, can experience a decrease in vision, headache, frequent change in their glasses, and in advanced cases loss of side vision with only central vision left intact.
Glaucoma can be treated both medically and with surgery. Medical management of glaucoma includes putting drops in the eye one or two times a day life long to maintain the eye pressures below 21mmhg.
