Glaucoma is a terrible eye disease which damages the optic nerve, due to the sudden build-up of aqueous humor (the fluid between the cornea and the anterior chamber) which increases the eye pressure. If not treated in time Glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss. With early detection and regular treatment, Glaucoma can be prevented. At seedi eye clinic, we understand the importance of healthy eyesight and therefore, we offer the latest and best Glaucoma Treatment in Bangalore at an affordable cost.
How does it happen?
The cornea has a fluid beneath which helps nourish the tissue and also maintain the eye pressure. When the fluid suddenly increases, the extra fluid cause a hike in the eye pressure, which in turn affects the optic nerve. Once the optic nerve damages beyond recovery, the person may no longer be able to see through that eye.
What are the symptoms of glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a slow growing disease. Thus the early symptoms are rather painless which makes
difficult to realize. However, the following symptoms can be a warning sign:
• Loss of peripheral vision
• Appearance of tunnel vision
• Severe eye pain
• Blurred vision
• Vomiting due to eye stress
• Halos near light
• Problem in seeing in dim as well as bright lights
• Red eyes
What are the various types of Glaucoma?
There are mainly two types of Glaucoma
1. Open-angle Glaucoma
2. Closed-angle Glaucoma
Open angle glaucoma
It is also called chronic glaucoma. It progresses very slowly without any warning. Often people with open angle glaucoma realize the disease by the time it is too late. Any loss of peripheral vision or difficulty inside vision is the early sign of glaucoma, and the treatment should be performed without delay.
