WHAT IS GLAUCOMA?

Banner

Glaucoma is an eye disease in which eye pressure rises which causes damage to the nerve sited in the back of the eye (optic nerve) and leads to loss of eyesight. At first, side (peripheral) vision is lost. If glaucoma is not treated, vision loss might continue, leading to complete blindness over time. At The Sight Avenue, we aim to give our patients optimal care and the best Glaucoma treatment options from the highly trained Glaucoma specialists at an affordable glaucoma treatment cost in Delhi.

TYPES OF GLAUCOMA NEEDING DIFFERENT GLAUCOMA TREATMENT OPTIONS

OPEN-ANGLE GLAUCOMA (OAG)

Open-angle glaucoma (OAG) is the world's second-largest cause of blindness. In open-angle glaucoma, the optic nerve is gradually impaired, generally causing gradual loss of vision. Both eyes can be affected simultaneously, although one might be affected more than the other. At times, much of your eyesight can be affected before you observe a change.

CLOSED-ANGLE GLAUCOMA (CAG)

In closed-angle glaucoma (CAG), the colored portion of the eye i.e., the iris and the lens block the movement of fluid between the chambers of the eye, triggering pressure to build up and the iris to push on the drainage system (trabecular meshwork) of the eye. It might cause unexpected hazy vision with pain and redness, typically in one eye first; symptoms might also include nausea and vomiting. A related type, acute closed-angle glaucoma, is often an emergency scenario and needs instantaneous medical care to prevent perpetual impairment of the eye.

CONGENITAL GLAUCOMA

Congenital glaucoma is a rare type of glaucoma that is present in some babies at birth. Glaucoma that develops during the first few months of life is called infantile glaucoma. Babies with congenital or infantile glaucoma generally have cloudy eyes that are sensitive to light and have unwarranted tearing. Symptoms might not develop until 6 months to 1 year after birth. If the issue is not identified early and treated, the child might have severe vision loss and might go blind.

GLAUCOMA SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Most people don’t have any. The first sign is often a loss of peripheral, or side, vision. That can go unnoticed until late in the disease. That’s why glaucoma is often called the “sneak thief of vision.” Detecting glaucoma early is one reason you should have a complete exam with a Glaucoma specialist every 1 to 2 years. Occasionally, the pressure inside the eye can rise to severe levels.

  • Sudden eye pain
  • Headache
  • Blurred vision
  • The appearance of halos around lights

ADVANTAGES OF GLAUCOMA TREATMENT PROCEDURES

Early detection and treatment will usually prevent further damage by glaucoma. Much can be done to help you use your remaining vision as fully as possible. Although the damage that is already done cannot be repaired, with early diagnosis and careful regular observation and treatment, damage can usually be kept to a minimum, and good vision can be enjoyed indefinitely.
