Specialists K + 31 recommend not to neglect the examination by an ophthalmologist even if even mild symptoms are detected. Early detection of glaucoma will help to suspend the irreversible process in time and maintain visual function. Regular monitoring of the disease allows you to adjust the medication regimen in time or to solve the issue of laser eye treatment and surgical treatment of the eye.
Symptoms of Glaucoma
- blurred vision, veil before the eye
- narrowing of visual fields
- the appearance of rainbow circles around the light source
- feeling of fullness in the eye, pain
- blurred vision at night and dusk
To detect glaucoma, a list of diagnostic procedures is required to study the fields of view and a thorough examination of the fundus in order to assess the condition of the optic nerve.
At K + 31, an ophthalmologist conducts detailed individual screening for early detection of this condition.
It should be noted once again that changes in the quality of visual functions in glaucoma are irreversible. And any treatment offered to you, whether it be a drip regimen, laser intervention or surgery, will allow you to maintain and maintain those eye functions that are not yet affected by this insidious disease. Unfortunately, it is impossible to completely cure glaucoma. But you can slow down its progression, maintain vision and support nerve fibers.
At K + 31, qualified ophthalmologists will select for you the necessary treatment for glaucoma, which will help prevent further progression of the disease.
At the initial detection of glaucoma, a hypotensive drip regimen (which reduces intraocular pressure) is prescribed, then a second dose is required to evaluate the quality of treatment received. From the moment glaucoma is detected, the patient requires constant monitoring by an ophthalmologist. Disease control will help maintain vision and avoid fatal complications.
Most patients over the years do not need other treatment methods other than drop instillation. But there are a number of reasons why you may necessarily need the intervention of a laser or cavity surgeon.
Glaucoma surgery is required in the following cases:
- the absence of a decrease in intraocular pressure at the maximum drip mode,
- drug intolerance,
- the unstable nature of the glaucomatous process,
- progression of visual impairment.
The solution to the question of a particular treatment method is discussed with each patient individually, based on the data of a diagnostic examination, the course of the disease, the appropriateness of a certain type of intervention.
Most importantly, do not forget that glaucoma requires quick and timely treatment. Even at the first suspicion, do not postpone the visit to the ophthalmologist. Then the disease does not hinder, even after many years, to see the world around us as bright.
