Best Doctors for Glaucoma Treatment in Ranchi



Glaucoma has no symptoms in its early stages. In fact, half the people with glaucoma do not know they have it! Having regular eye exams can help your ophthalmologist find this disease before you lose vision.

What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a disease that damages the eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the eye. The extra fluid increases the pressure in the eye and damages the optic nerve.

Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness for people over 60 years old. But blindness from glaucoma can often be prevented with early treatment.

There are two major types of glaucoma.

Primary open-angle glaucoma

This is the most common type of glaucoma. It happens gradually, where the eye does not drain fluid as well as it should.

As a result, eye pressure builds and starts to damage the optic nerve. This type of glaucoma is painless and causes no vision changes at first and that is why it is called the Silent Thief of Sight.

patient can detect loss of vision only when the damage is advanced and is irreversible at that stage.

Regular eye exams are important to find early signs of damage to their optic nerve.

Angle-closure glaucoma

This type happens when the iris is very close to the drainage angle in the eye.

When the drainage angle gets completely blocked, eye pressure rises very quickly.

This is called an acute attack. It is a true eye emergency and requires immediate treatment.

An attack of angle-closure glaucoma

  • Severe pain in the eye or forehead
  • Redness of the eye
  • Decreased vision or blurred vision
  • Rainbows or Coloured haloes
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Who Is At Risk for Glaucoma?

This includes people who:

  • Age more than 40
  • Family History of Glaucoma
  • Have high eye pressure
  • Myopia or Hypermetropia
  • Eye injury in the past
  • Long-term steroid medications use
  • Thinning of the optic nerve
  • Diabetes, migraines, High blood pressure, poor blood circulation or other health problems affecting the whole body

Glaucoma Diagnosis

The only sure way to diagnose glaucoma is with a complete eye exam by a Doctor. Only eye pressure is not enough to diagnose glaucoma.

  • Eye pressure- IOP
  • Gonioscopy
  • Visual Field Analysis
  • Retinal Nerve Fibre Layer thickness OCT and GDx
  • Pachymetry

Can Glaucoma Be Stopped? 

Glaucoma damage is permanent—it cannot be reversed. But medicine and surgery help to stop further damage.

What are the treatment Options for Glaucoma?
  • Treatment options include
  • Medical Therapy- lifelong eyedrops
  • Laser Therapy
  • Surgical Intervention
    • Trabeculectomy is a surgical procedure used in the treatment of glaucoma to relieve intraocular pressure by removing part of the eye's trabecular meshwork and adjacent structures. It is the most common glaucoma surgery performed and allows drainage of aqueous humour from within the eye to underneath the conjunctiva where it is absorbed
    • Valve Surgery
