Glaucoma


Glaucoma Clinic 

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world. In most forms of glaucoma the IOP is elevated above normal limits, causing damage to the optic nerve and resulting in loss of visual field. If not treated this can progress to total blindness. Prevalence of glaucoma is increasing in the world. The loss of retinal ganglion cells in glaucoma is irreversible; therefore early detection is critical to prevent progression of the diseases. Glaucoma can't be cured, only managed to prevent further damage to the optic nerve.
