Glaucoma Week 2024

Glaucoma is the second cause of blindness in the world and has no cure, the best way to identify it is to have a consultation in time.

What is glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a disease that causes irreversible deterioration of the optic nerve, the structure responsible for carrying visual information from the eye to the brain so that it can be translated into images.

Risk factor's

  • Elevated intraocular pressure.
  • Family history with glaucoma.
  • African or Hispanic descent.
  • Over 40 years
  • High myopia or hyperopia.
  • Ocular trauma, previous eye surgery or corticosteroid drops.
  • Diabetic retinopathy, sleep apnea, migraine, high blood pressure or thin corneas.

Is there any type of treatment?

Yes, although glaucoma has no cure, there are treatments aimed at controlling it by reducing intraocular pressure.

Options range from medications, lasers and surgeries, depending on each patient.

We will perform an intraocular pressure measurement, respond to concerns and a preferential rate for our patients who actively participate in this activity with our ally nova vision laser clinic.
