Are you over 40 years or above? Then you need to regularly get your eyes checked for vision loss and Glaucoma. EYE-Q has more than a decade of experienced eye specialist doctors for Glaucoma diagnosis and treatment. Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage Optic nerve and lead to vision loss and blindness. Most Glaucoma occurs gradually without any warning symptoms and therefore it becomes necessary to have a regular eye health check-up. At EYE-Q, Our eye specialist doctors have diagnosed and helped patients with Glaucoma disease successfully over the span of 14+ years.
Eye drops: Eye drops is the first line of defence for Glaucoma treatment. Eye drops help in draining the eye fluids and lowering optic nerve pressure. Different combination of eye drops is prescribed according to the severity of the Glaucoma.
Laser Surgery: Laser surgery is a painless and bladeless procedure for Glaucoma treatment. Laser surgery is effective in opening the fluid drainage area (Trabeculoplasty and Iridotomy) and reducing fluid production (Cyclophotocoagulation).
Microsurgery (Trabeculectomy): Microsurgery is a procedure in which new channels for fluid drainage are created in the eyes to ease pressure on the optic nerve. EYE-Q offers new valve- drainage device implantation microsurgeries for Glaucoma treatment.

Decrease in the field of vision
Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the optic nerve is damaged, causing permanent vision loss. Most commonly, the damage occurs when your eye’s internal fluid pressure rises too high. The increased pressure is usually due to inadequate drainage of fluid normally produced in your eyes. However, some people can experience optic nerve damage even if their eye pressure is normal.
Glaucoma is one of the most common causes of irreversible blindness in the world and India has one of the highest numbers of glaucoma patients. Over 40 million of the estimated 309 million population aged 40 years or older in India either have glaucoma or are at risk of developing the disease.
Unfortunately, there are no symptoms in early glaucoma in the majority of the patients. This makes the disease very dangerous and many patients lose their vision just because of the lack of regular check-ups. That is why it is very important to get yearly eye check-up especially after the age of 40 years. It becomes even more important if you have risk factors for glaucoma.
Some aggressive forms of glaucoma can cause a sudden diminution of vision associated with pain, redness, and colored haloes.
The common risk factors for developing glaucoma are:
The Chance that you will get glaucoma if your parent/s have it is still low but more than the general population. Even if you do not have any vision or eye-related problems you should get a yearly eye check-up.
If diagnosed at an early stage, glaucoma can often be controlled with little or no further vision loss. If left untreated, the first peripheral vision and then central vision will be affected, and blindness may result.
A comprehensive eye examination will include eye tests for glaucoma. A simple, painless procedure called tonometry measures the internal pressure of your eye. Your doctor will also check the health of the optic nerve and perform a routine examination called gonioscopy if required. Specialized tests like Visual field analysis and optical coherence tomography are also available for detecting glaucoma and follow-up for cases.
Glaucoma treatment includes medications in the form of Eye Drops and tablets (in certain cases), Lasers, and Surgery. The majority of the patients can be managed conservatively with lasers and eye drops. However, in advanced and aggressive cases surgery may be warranted.
Regrettably, there are many myths and misconceptions associated with glaucoma management in our society. Many types of glaucoma surgeries are now available with excellent results. The cases where surgery is warranted are at a much greater risk of losing vision due to the progression of glaucomatous damage than due to the surgery per se. That being told, any surgery has its own set of risks, and hence, a risk to benefit ratio is always carefully evaluated by the doctor before advising surgery.
Unfortunately, any vision loss as a result of glaucoma usually cannot be restored. This is why regular preventive eye tests are so important. Treatment is usually given to maintain the remaining vision and prevent any further deterioration of vision. Low-vision rehabilitation services, which include the use of specialized optical devices and training, may benefit people with severe vision loss from glaucoma.
