Glaucoma is the name for the group of diseases where the optic nerve is gradually destroyed, usually by eye pressure that is too high.
This can be because of problems with fluid drainage within the eye, or because of poor blood supply to the optic nerve itself.
Glaucoma mostly has NO symptoms, so it is important that it is assessed regularly. At Eyescan, we have sophisticated and sensitive equipment to help us diagnose glaucoma. Early diagnosis leads to early treatment and saves sight.
Glaucoma can be treated in many ways, including drops, laser and surgery.
