In most cases of glaucoma, the patient is not aware of the gradual loss of sight until vision is significantly impaired. However, if glaucoma progresses without adequate treatment, the following symptoms may occur in some individuals:
Glaucoma damage is permanent—it cannot be reversed. But medicine and surgery help to stop further damage. To treat glaucoma, your ophthalmologist may use one or more of the following treatments.
Tonometry: Recording of intra Ocular pressure, Tonometer.
Gonioscopy: The eye is checked with a lens to determine whether it has closed or open glaucoma.
Perimetry: This test is required for diagnosing patients with glaucoma. This test is necessary not only to determine the level of current damage, but also to document and track progress.
Non-invasive tests include OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography) and CCT (Pachymetry). The patient is instructed to focus on a light while the advanced machine and software examine the nerve and nerve fibre layer’s condition.
