Glaucoma

Glaucoma Surgery Department

Glaucoma is caused when pressure builds up inside the eye, damaging the optic nerve that connects the eye to the brain. If it’s not treated in time, it can cause irreversible blindness.

Eyes surgery and eye care unit offers a number of cosmetic eye surgeries such as oily sac surgery, a simple surgical procedure that the patient can follow directly to his home. It is performed under simple local anesthesia. Eyelid surgery is performed as a surgical procedure to modify the eyelid’s condition. The condition of the excess tissue, such as skin and fat, is removed or modified, and the muscles and tendons surrounding the eyelid are adjusted to treat the problem of eyelid inversion. This surgery is functional and cosmetic at the same time. Other cosmetic operations are also conducted.

The condition can be difficult to diagnose because symptoms don’t appear straight away – instead, they develop slowly over many years. This means many patients only seek treatment when they notice they’re losing their sight, when significant damage has already occurred.

 

Glaucoma is a group of conditions caused by normal fluid in the eye that hasn’t drained properly. This creates pressure that damages the optic nerve connecting the eye to the brain, resulting in sight loss. Although it’s not clear exactly why this happens, factors such as age, family history, racial background and other medical conditions such as diabetes and short-sightedness can increase the risk. It can affect people of all ages, but it’s most common in adults.

 

There are different types of glaucoma, and treatment will depend on the type a patient has. Glaucoma can’t be cured, and vision that has already been lost cannot be restored. But further sight loss can be prevented via medication or surgery. Each glaucoma patient requires lifelong management for best results.

What are the symptoms of Glaucoma?

  • Severe headache
  • Eye pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Blurred vision

If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, it is important to set a regular schedule of examinations with your eye doctor to monitor your condition and make sure that your prescribed treatment is effectively maintaining a safe eye pressure.
