Protect Your Eyes with our Comprehensive Glaucoma Treatment
What is Glaucoma?
The condition is often a result of the high pressure in your eyes. There is a clear liquid that flows in our eyes. The amount that comes in should be complemented by the amount that goes out. This drainage happens through an area called the drainage angle. When this angle gets disrupted, fluids can build up in the eye, resulting in increased pressure on the eye. This pressure can damage the optic nerve in the long run. The optic nerve transfers visual information between your eye and the brain. Glaucoma can happen at any age, but it is more common in people who are above the age of 60.
Types of Glaucoma
Stages of Glaucoma
There are four stages to Glaucoma based on the severity of the condition.
The initial stages of Glaucoma are not easily detectable. Often, by the time one learns about the disease, it has already progressed to the later stages.
Location of Glaucoma
The location of Glaucoma is the back of the eye. This disease directly impacts the optic nerve that is responsible for the transmission of signals from the eyes to the brain. If the optic nerve gets damaged, it can lead to complete loss of vision.
Treatment for Glaucoma
Glaucoma can be treated using a number of options. The glaucoma treatment options include low-risk surgery, oral medications, and eye drops. The eye drops can help drain the fluid from your eye. Medications such as beta-blockers or carbonic anhydrase inhibitors can be taken orally for the same purpose. The glaucoma treatment options include:
