Cutting Edge Glaucoma Technology


Glaucoma is an eye illness where patients lose fringe vision. It is related to raised eye pressures, which cause harm to the optic nerve, a design that associates the eye to the mind.

This should either be possible by a reduction of liquid your eye makes, or by improving how the liquid channels from your eye.

Oral medications may also be used if eye drops do not significantly lower eye pressure. The common drug prescribed to help further decrease eye pressure is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor.

Glaucoma Treatment Procedures

A few distinct techniques can adequately treat glaucoma. Prior to settling on a medical procedure, you ought to consider particular glaucoma eye drops. These can help decline pressure in your eyes and eye liquid creation. Glaucoma eye drops come in a wide range of structures, including beta-blockers, prostaglandins, and that’s just the beginning.

A few experts additionally utilize an assortment of treatment strategies to treat glaucomas. These incorporate both laser or sifting treatment and seepage tubes.

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT)

SLT is a kind of laser strategy performed at a glaucoma treatment focus that opens up the seepage diverts in the eye, known as the trabecular meshwork, to help decline eye pressure. It utilizes low-recurrence energy that is “specifically” consumed by the trabecular meshwork, leaving encompassing tissues unaffected. SLT is a superb choice to pressure-bringing down eye drops and can be utilized as an option for individuals who have been dealt with fruitlessly with conventional laser systems. It can likewise be securely rehashed if essential.

Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI)

LPI is the treatment for thin points, restricted point glaucoma, or intense point conclusion glaucoma. At the point when an LPI methodology is acted in patients with restricted points, it is viewed as a prophylactic technique that keeps these patients from creating intense point conclusion glaucoma, which they are at higher danger of creating. Intense point conclusion glaucoma indications are unexpected agony in the eye or around the eye with redness and obscured vision.

Minimally invasive procedures (iStent, express shunt)

Different arrangements accessible at our glaucoma treatment focus incorporate the iStent embed. It is a novel microsurgical embed, which brings intraocular pressing factor and downs to oversee gentle to direct open-point glaucoma.

This is a surgery utilized in the treatment of glaucoma when the drug or laser systems don’t bring down pressure sufficiently. In this medical procedure, a small seepage opening is made in the sclera (the more profound layers of the white of the eye) to diminish intraocular pressure. The conjunctiva, the external layer of the white of the eye, is then used to cover this opening. The new waste opening permits liquid to stream out of the eye and into a repository made from the eye’s regular tissues, assisting with bringing down eye pressure and forestall harm to the optic nerve.

Glaucoma drainage device implantation

Glaucoma seepage gadgets are intended to redirect fluid humor from the foremost chamber to an outer repository. These gadgets have shown achievement in controlling intraocular pressure (IOP) in eyes with recently fizzled trabeculectomy and eyes with deficient conjunctiva due to scarring from earlier surgeries or wounds. They likewise have exhibited achievement in convoluted glaucomas, for example, uveitic glaucoma, neovascular glaucoma, and pediatric and formative glaucoma, among others.
