Glaucoma Services

Glaucoma also called Silent thief of sight is an asymptomatic disease of the eye that exhibits a typical optic neuropathy that results in progressive visual field loss. The most important risk factor is raised intraocular pressure. Risk factors for glaucoma include age above 40 years, diabetes, myopia, mature cataract, trauma, certain retinal diseases and a family history of glaucoma.

At Ahuja Eye Centre the patient is investigated thoroughly with the use of Perimetry, Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) and then the treatment is personalized to the patient to maintain his vision and quality of life.

Glaucoma is treated by lowering your eye pressure (intraocular pressure). Depending on the condition, your options may include prescription of eye drops, oral medications,  laser treatment, surgery, or a combination of these treatments.
