Glaucomatous optic nerve head damage

GLAUCOMA SERVICES

Glaucoma is a disease that produces damage to the nerve in the back of the eye (optic nerve). This damage occurs because of many different factors. The pressure in the eye is usually elevated. Whether the damage to the optic nerve occurs due to high pressure or changes in blood flow to the nerve is not completely understood. Nerve damage produces loss of side vision or peripheral vision. Progressive nerve damage produces progressive peripheral vision loss. Untreated, glaucoma is a blinding disease.

The Glaucoma Clinic at Singla Eye Hospital specialises in effective long-term management of Glaucoma and associated complications that are likely to arise with this degenerative disorder. As a matter of procedure, all patients are screened for Glaucoma / possible Glaucoma, as timely intervention is crucial to its effective management.
