Glaucoma, the primary cause of permanent blindness, impacts a significant number of individuals globally, with approximately 70 million people affected. Shockingly, around 10% of glaucoma patients experience complete blindness in both eyes.
This disease gradually damages and kills the nerve cells and fibers responsible for connecting the eye to the brain. In the early stages, patients often remain unaware as they may not exhibit any noticeable symptoms.
It's important to note that diagnosing glaucoma cannot rely solely on intraocular pressure levels, as individuals with normal or low pressures can still develop the condition. Similarly, not all patients with high intraocular pressure will develop glaucoma. A comprehensive evaluation is necessary to accurately diagnose and manage this sight-threatening disease.

Diagnosing glaucoma requires a comprehensive approach involving extensive clinical evaluation and specialized testing to detect the condition at an early stage. Consequently, routine eye examinations conducted by ophthalmologists often play a crucial role in identifying patients with glaucoma.

At our facility, we offer advanced eye microsurgery techniques that enable effective glaucoma treatment and surgical interventions. Our aim is to make these essential procedures accessible to patients at affordable costs, ensuring that they receive the care they need to preserve their vision.

To further enhance early detection and facilitate timely intervention, we also organize screening camps dedicated to identifying, preventing, and treating glaucoma. These camps serve as an invaluable resource for raising awareness, providing comprehensive evaluations, and delivering appropriate management strategies to individuals at risk or already affected by glaucoma.

We offer a wide variety of diagnostic modalities

1. Optic Nerve Head Evaluation

Assessing various parameters such as disc size, cup-disc ratio, disc depth, rim characteristics, presence of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) defects, and other relevant factors provides valuable insights to clinicians in determining whether a patient has a definitive diagnosis of glaucoma or falls into the category of a glaucoma suspect. These comprehensive evaluations of the eye's structural features play a crucial role in aiding clinicians to make accurate assessments and provide appropriate management strategies for patients with glaucoma or those at risk of developing the condition.

2. Tonometry

Intraocular Pressure Measurement (I.O.P.) can be accomplished using various types of tonometers, specialized devices for measuring the pressure inside the eye. By accurately assessing the I.O.P., healthcare professionals can establish a baseline pressure reading and determine the extent to which it decreases when treatment is initiated. This information is crucial for monitoring the effectiveness of interventions and optimizing the management of conditions such as glaucoma.

3. Pachymetry

The thickness of the cornea has a significant impact on the measured values of intraocular pressure (I.O.P.). Therefore, it is necessary to correct the I.O.P. value to ensure accurate interpretation and prevent any potential impact on disease management. By accounting for corneal thickness, healthcare professionals can obtain more reliable and meaningful information about the patient's intraocular pressure, enabling them to make informed decisions regarding treatment and effectively manage ocular conditions.

4. Gonioscopy

The assessment of intraocular pressure (I.O.P.) helps in determining the specific type of glaucoma a patient has, providing crucial information for tailoring an appropriate treatment plan. By understanding the individual's I.O.P. levels, healthcare professionals can make informed decisions about the most effective interventions and therapies to manage the specific type of glaucoma and optimize patient outcomes.

5. Visual Fields

Visual field testing provides valuable information about the extent of field loss and helps determine the stage of the disease in glaucoma. Additionally, it assesses functional visual loss caused by glaucoma, allowing healthcare professionals to accurately evaluate the impact of the condition on a patient's visual abilities. This information plays a vital role in monitoring disease progression, guiding treatment decisions, and providing appropriate care to individuals affected by glaucoma.

6. OCT

Provides the structural damage due to glaucoma and helps in correlating with the field loss.
