Glaucoma
The silent enemy

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can cause vision loss and blindness by damaging a nerve in the back of your eye called the optic nerve.

The symptoms can start so slowly that you may not notice them. The only way to find out if you have glaucoma is to get a comprehensive dilated eye exam.

There’s no cure for glaucoma, but early treatment can often stop the damage and protect your vision.

Glaucoma management is not so trivial

Establishing the diagnosis of glaucoma has a huge impact on an individual and his family, and the differences between glaucoma patients and normal people is very subtle. Extensive investigations are critical for a correct diagnosis. We at Goyal eye have a non compromising protocol for glaucoma investigations, that minimizes both over and under treatment

ULTRA HIGH RESOLUTION SD OCT

Picks up earliest glaucomatous damage

The most sensitive test for detecting progression of Glaucoma. OCT is the prime test that can determine glaucoma progression objectively.

DIGITAL OPTIC NERVE HEAD PHOTOGRAPHY

Provides database for comparison on follow up visits

Slow and subtle changes in the optic nerve, need to be compared over years. High resolution images help in comparison and decision making

ZEISS HUMPHREY’S VISUAL FIELD ANALYSER

The yard-stick for glaucomatous damage

Zeiss HVF is the perfect tool for Objective assessment of visual field. It is the true indicator of glaucoma’s impact on the patient’s vision and helps in patient education about his/her disease status.

GOLDMANN’S APPLANATION TONOMETRY

Gold-standard of eye pressure recording

Delicate performance of this instrument gives precise readings of the eye pressure. All Glaucoma patients at GEI are managed based on their eye pressure readings of Applanation tonometer only.

NON CONTACT PACHYMETRY

To ensure that the recorded pressure is not a false alarm

The eye pressure recorded by any method is dependant on the thickness of the eyeball. The thicker the eyeball the higher the pressure readings. Hence, the eye pressure must be adjusted for the thickness of the eyeball.

TREATMENT

Eye drops / Laser / Surgery

The main stay of glaucoma treatment is eye drops, however Shunt and Valve surgeries are done for advanced cases. Laser iridotomy is done for angle closure glaucoma.
