Sanjivni’s Eye specialists are dedicated to providing world-class glaucoma treatment and care. The disease is often asymptomatic, and people may lose their vision without knowing it. Regular eye exams are an important way to detect the disease.
Glaucoma refers to a group of diseases that damage the optic nerve, which carries visual information from the back of the eye to the brain. Although glaucoma may not have symptoms in the beginning, eventually permanent vision loss can occur. Vision loss from glaucoma is irreversible, therefore early identification, treatment, and consistent follow-up are important. Risk factors for glaucoma include age, family history, the shape of the eye, race/ethnicity, and increased eye pressure.
Symptoms: Glaucoma can happen to anybody. Often there are no symptoms in early stages; progressive loss of vision occurs in later stages. Some types of glaucoma such as acute angle-closure glaucoma can result in sudden significant eye pain and cloudy vision.
Diagnosis: Based on an exam by an eye doctor, supplemented by imaging and visual field testing.
Treatment: Treatment aims to lower eye pressure and help to slow down or prevent vision loss. Treatments include: laser, surgery, and prescription eye drops
