Prabha Eye Hospital is renowned for providing comprehensive glaucoma management services. The hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and experienced ophthalmologists who are trained to diagnose and manage various forms of glaucoma.
Diagnosis is the first important step in managing glaucoma. Prabha Eye Hospital uses sophisticated imaging equipment such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fundus photography to detect early signs of glaucoma. The hospital also performs tonometry and visual field tests to measure intraocular pressure (IOP) and assess peripheral vision, respectively.
Once diagnosed, the hospital offers various treatment options depending on the severity and type of glaucoma. These include medical management, which involves the use of eye drops or oral medication to lower intraocular pressure (IOP). Prabha Eye Hospital offers a wide range of eye drops that can help reduce IOP, including prostaglandin analogues, beta-blockers, and alpha-agonists.
In cases where medication is not enough to manage glaucoma, Prabha Eye Hospital offers advanced surgical procedures such as trabeculectomy or glaucoma drainage implants. Trabeculectomy is a procedure that involves creating a new channel for the aqueous humor to drain from the eye, thus reducing IOP. Glaucoma drainage implants, on the other hand, are small devices surgically implanted in the eye that help drain fluid and reduce IOP.
Prabha Eye Hospital also offers laser trabeculoplasty, a non-invasive procedure that uses a laser to treat the trabecular meshwork, the part of the eye that regulates fluid drainage. Laser trabeculoplasty can be used in conjunction with medication to lower IOP.
Prabha Eye Hospital offers comprehensive glaucoma management services, including sophisticated imaging technology and a range of treatment options. Patients receive personalized care from experienced ophthalmologists who are committed to preserving the patient’s vision and quality of life.
