Glaucoma - Gupta Eye Hospital

Best Glaucoma Treatment In Panipat

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases in which the retinal nerve fibres are damaged leading to progressive optic nerve damage resulting in decreased vision or even blindness. It is an important reason for poor quality of life due to loss of vision resulting in difficulty in near vision, working in dim light and driving. The Glaucoma Clinic at Gupta Eye Hospital specialises in effective long-term management of Glaucoma and associated complications that are likely to arise with this degenerative disorder. All patients are screened for Glaucoma/possible Glaucoma, as timely intervention is crucial to its effective management.

At the front of the eye, there is a small space called the anterior chamber. Clear fluid flows in and out of the chamber to bathe and nourish nearby tissues. In Glaucoma there is an impairment in the dynamics of this fluid called aqueous humour due to varied causes, some of which are unknown leading to increase in intraocular pressure. Unless this pressure is controlled, it may cause damage to the optic nerve and loss of vision.
