Glaucoma Treatment in Hyderabad


Glaucoma is a condition that damages your eye’s optic nerve and this even worsens with time. Glaucoma is mostly caused due to genital disorders and hence it does not develop by itself. The condition is usually caused due to high pressure in the eye if there’s an excessive fluid building it. If you’re a victim of glaucoma, then you might be facing blindness, poor eyesight, etc. Many people who are undergoing glaucoma are not aware of it as there are no symptoms of it and no pain. 

It is better to consult your doctor before it gets too late. If you once lost your vision due to glaucoma, then it is impossible to get your vision back and it will remain for a long time with no recovery. However, people with glaucoma who have a regular eye exam and are getting regular treatment for it are the ones who can still hope to get their lost vision back.

Causes of Glaucoma

The fluid inside your eye, also known as aqueous humor, usually flows out of your eye through a mesh-like channel. If this channel is blocked, or the eye is producing a lot of fluid, then a liquid builds up. Many times, even doctors cannot analyze why this blockage is caused. But one main cause of it is that it might be inherited, which means that it is passed from the parents to the child. 

Another common cause of glaucoma is that a person has undergone a chemical injury or contact with blunt and sharp edges which can lead to a severe eye infection. 

Risk factors of glaucoma

There are several risk factors for glaucoma. Listed below are some of the main risk factors of glaucoma. You are most likely to get glaucoma if you:

  • Are over 40 years of age,
  • Have a family history of glaucoma,
  • Are a diabetic patient,
  • Have a poor eye vision,
  • Are nearsighted or farsighted,
  • Take steroids regularly, 
  • Had an eye injury,
  • Have a high eye pressure,
  • Have high blood pressure.

Types of glaucoma

There are several types of glaucoma, such as:

  • Open-angle glaucoma

Open-angle glaucoma, also known as wide-angle glaucoma, is the most common type of glaucoma. In this type of glaucoma, the drain structure looks fine but the fluid doesn’t flow as it should. 

  • Angle-closure glaucoma

Angle-closure glaucoma, also known as acute or chronic angle-closure or narrow-angle glaucoma is most common in Asia. This type of glaucoma causes a sudden build-up of pressure in your eye and hence this can lead to farsightedness or clouding of the natural eye lenses. 

Symptoms of Glaucoma

If you have some symptoms of glaucoma and you are neglecting it and not treating it the way it should be, then serious damage can happen. If you have any of the below-mentioned symptoms, make sure that you are seeking medical help on an immediate basis without any delays. 

  • Loss of vision,

  • Redness in the eyes. 

How can glaucoma be diagnosed?

If you are facing any of the above symptoms, it is advised to visit your doctor for an eye check-up. Your doctor would then perform a glaucoma test on you, which is painless and does not take long. The doctor will test your vision and will make use of eye drops to dilate your pupils. Then after carefully examining your eyes, your doctor would come to a diagnostic conclusion.
