Glaucoma Detailed Work-up

What is glaucoma?

How is glaucoma detected?

Unfortunately glaucoma is a disease, which cannot be seen or felt by the patients in the early stages. Early detection, through regular and complete eye exams, is the key to protecting your vision from damage caused by glaucoma.

In addition to a complete medical history and eye examination, Our glaucoma detailed work-up includes:

  • Tonometry: To measures the inner eye pressure. The range for normal pressure is 12-22 mm Hg (“mm Hg” refers to millimeters of mercury, a scale used to record eye pressure)
  • Perimetry (visual field test): We use Zeiss Humphrey Field Analyzer for this purpose.
  • Gonioscopy: To assess the condition of the angles in the eye where the iris meets the cornea is open and wide or narrow and closed.
  • Retinal Nerve Fibre Analysis (Optical Coherence Tomography): This is an essential test to pick up early cases of neuronal damage.
