WHAT IS GLAUCOMA SERVICES
Glaucoma is a disease that gets worse with time if proper care is not taken. It is a condition that causes damage to your eye’s optic nerve. Glaucoma is often the result of pressure that builds inside the eye. Glaucoma can cause permanent damage to the eyes and hence immediate and proper care needs to be taken.
The first and foremost sign of Glaucoma is loss of peripheral or side vision, which can go unnoticed till a very later stage. Glaucoma is one of the most serious reasons you should have a complete eye examination from a specialist once a year which greatly helps in detecting the signs of glaucoma early. Some of the common symptoms of glaucoma are seeing halos around lights, vision loss, redness in the eye, eye that looks hazy (particularly in infants), nausea or vomiting, pain in the eye, narrowing of vision (tunnel vision). Glaucoma can be treated with prescribed eye drops, laser surgery or microsurgery.
