What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is often caused by elevation of the intraocular pressure and subsequent damage to the optic nerve. There are eye fluids that are constantly present in the eye and thrown out with some channels. This liquid; eye lens and transparent layer. If this produced fluid can not be thrown out, the intraocular pressure increases and the visual acuity of the cells suffers from damage. This loop resul

Glaucoma Symptoms

A clear eye liquid is secreted into the eye and then sucked out of the eye. If the outlet is clogged, the water accumulates in the reservoir and the pressure increases.  * Headaches that are noticeable in the morning,  * Blurred vision from time to time,  * Illuminated rings around night lights,  * Pain around the eye while watching television.

Types of Glaucoma

Open-angle glaucoma: The most common type of glaucoma. It is seen in about 1% of society and more than 40 years old. It does not give any symptoms in the early period. As the intraocular pressure rises slowly, the symptoms start slowly, the cornea does not become blurred at first, and the pain is not felt. Sickness may slowly disappear, so patients may not realize it until late. When visual loss w

Factors Increasing Glaucoma Riskin

* If you are over 35 years old, * Glaucoma story in the family (genetic predisposition) * Smoking, * Having diabetes, * Severe anemia or shock,   * High-low systemic blood pressure (body blood pressure), * High Myopia, * High Hypermetropia, * Migraine, * Taking long-term cortisone treatment,   * Having passed the eye injury, * Due to the black race, peopl

How is Glaucoma Disease Diagnosed?

The best way to detect glaucoma is to go to regular eye examinations. Measurement of intraocular pressure Assessment of optic nerve damage Visual field test Examination of the eye by drainage (Gonioscopy) It is not easy to diagnose eye tension. Because there is no eye pressure that is normal for everyone. The eye pressure level of two people is the same. But one's vision is based on that tensi

Methods Used in Glaucoma Diagnosis

High technology examination devices are used in determining the follow-up of eye pressure and whether or not there is damage in the optic nerve. Our glaucoma physicians who plan to interpret the data of these devices plan the treatment of the patient. These; (optic nerve tomography), HRT (nerve fiber analysis) devices that perform visual nerve and nerve fiber analysis, which show the amount of vis

How to Treat Glaucoma Treatment

There are three main ways of treating glaucoma.  * Drug treatment  * Surgical treatment  * Laser treatment Drug treatment First, reduce the patient's eye strain, either by reducing the production of fluid in the eye, or by increasing the output of the eye. There are drugs for both. These medicines are medicines taken at regular intervals every day and used for life. If

Ocular hypertension

In some eyes, an intraocular pressure can be detected above the mean values, but there is no damage in the visual field. In other words, the visual nerves are normal. Treatment is not necessary as long as the intraocular pressure does not rise sufficiently in these conditions, but they need to be monitored closely.
