What is the Treatment For Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is curable if caught early, and the available treatments can stop it from spreading and further damaging your vision. You won’t be able to regain your peripheral vision once glaucoma has affected it and caused some visual loss.
If an ophthalmologist recommends it, you could have surgery to lower your eye pressure to prevent optic nerve damage.
Another option is a laser procedure that helps remove the aqueous humor from the eye.
There are two types of laser treatment for glaucoma; trabeculoplasty, open-angle glaucoma, and
iridotomy, for patients with closed-angle glaucoma.
There is also a non-surgical approach to treat glaucoma in the form of specialist eye drops. These may help your eye drain more effectively, relieving some of the pressure caused by an excess of fluid.
The treatment option for your glaucoma depends on the type and seriousness of your condition.
If you have glaucoma, you will need treatment before any of your vision has been affected as it cannot be recovered once lost.
