In many cases, glaucoma control requires lifelong treatment. Treatment option will depend on the nature and severity of the condition.
1 Ophthalmic Eyedrops
Ophthalmic eyedrops to alter the circulation of eye fluid and lower the eye pressure
2 Laser Surgery
Laser surgery to enhance the drainage function to control pressure within the eye
3 Operative Surgery
Operative surgery to create a new bypass drainage channel for the fluid to leave the eye, lowering the eye pressure
As most patients experience no symptoms or pain from the increased pressure, regular preventive check-ups and early diagnosis are important.
If you are over the age of 40 and have a family history of glaucoma, you should have a complete eye examination every 1 to 2 years. Book an appointment for a comprehensive eye examination to determine if you have glaucoma.
