Glaucoma Care – What is Glaucoma.
Glaucoma is the name given to a range of conditions in which people experience nerve damage, usually with increased pressure within the eyeball, leading to permanent and irreversible damage to the optic nerve, with eventual blindness if left untreated.
What is Glaucoma
A person with glaucoma is usually unaware that they have glaucoma until a serious loss of vision has occurred. In fact, nearly half of those suffering from glaucoma are unaware they have the disease because it develops without any obvious symptoms. As the damage from glaucoma cannot be reversed, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment is vital to preserve your vision.
Thankfully, glaucoma management has evolved rapidly in the last five years and we now have the capability to stop and prevent any further damage to the nerve, and your sight.
At LondonOC, our ophthalmologists offer expert bespoke consultations, and using the latest diagnostic tests with the correct treatment plan, we can help our patients to maintain as much useful sight as possible
