Early treatment of glaucoma helps to preserve your vision and prevent further damage to the optic nerve, a process which can silently cause severe and irreversible vision loss and even blindness.
Preserving vision and reducing the risk of further vision loss can greatly improve an individual's ability to perform daily tasks. Even mild glaucoma causes predictable eyesight difficulties that are not always consciously recognised.
Be seen on time, in a fun environment and easy access. Have plenty of time with staff, and all the time you need to ask questions.
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can lead to vision loss and blindness by damaging the optic nerve. The most common treatment for glaucoma is Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, or medication in the form of eye drops to lower the pressure within the eye. In more severe cases surgery may be required, such as Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery, Trabeculectomy or Drainage Tube Implant surgery.
Glaucoma can be mimicked by many other diseases and it is important to make sure your diagnosis is accurate so that your treatment is appropriate.
It is also important to ensure appropriate intervals between glaucoma testing and reviews as sight can be lost at any stage and this is irreversible.
