Understanding Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, essential for good vision, often caused by abnormally high pressure in your eye. Recognizing the signs and seeking treatment early can slow or prevent vision loss.

Types of Glaucoma

  • Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma (POAG): The most prevalent form, characterized by a gradual increase in IOP due to the slow clogging of the drainage canals.
  • Angle-Closure Glaucoma (ACG): A less common but more urgent form, where the drainage canals are abruptly blocked, causing a sudden spike in IOP.
  • Normal-Tension Glaucoma (NTG): Occurs when optic nerve damage happens despite a normal IOP level, highlighting the complexity of the disease beyond pressure parameters.

Why Early Treatment Is Crucial

Early detection and treatment are key to preventing the progression of glaucoma and preserving your vision. Routine eye exams are vital for timely diagnosis.

Advanced Diagnostic Techniques:

  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): This non-invasive imaging test provides high-resolution images of the optic nerve and retinal fibers, crucial for early detection and monitoring of the disease.
  • Visual Field Testing: A critical assessment that maps the visual field, detecting areas of vision loss.
  • Gonioscopy: A direct visualization technique to examine the drainage angle of the eye, aiding in the distinction between open-angle and angle-closure forms of glaucoma.

Our Comprehensive Glaucoma Treatment Procedures

Selective Approach for Maximum Efficacy:

  • Trabeculectomy: A surgical procedure to create an alternate drainage route for the aqueous humor to lower IOP. This method is particularly effective for cases where medication fails to control the progression.
  • Laser Trabeculoplasty: Utilizes laser technology to enhance drainage flow. Suitable for patients with open-angle glaucoma, it offers a less invasive option with minimal recovery time.
  • Micro-invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS): Targets the reduction of IOP through minimally invasive procedures, an ideal choice for early to moderate stages or as adjunctive therapy during cataract surgery.
  • Tube Shunt Surgery: Involves implanting a device to facilitate aqueous humor drainage. Recommended for patients with severe glaucoma or those who have had unsuccessful trabeculectomy.

What to Expect

  • Before Surgery: Comprehensive evaluation to determine the best treatment approach.
  • During Surgery: Our surgeons use the latest techniques and technology to achieve the best outcomes.
  • After Surgery: Detailed post-operative care and follow-ups to monitor your recovery and vision improvement.
