Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye’s optic nerve and gets worse over time. It’s often linked to a buildup of pressure inside your eye. Glaucoma tends to be inherited and may not show up until later in life. The increased pressure, called intraocular pressure, can damage the optic nerve, which transmits images to your brain. If the damage continues, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss. Without treatment, glaucoma can cause total permanent blindness within a few years.
Treatment is aimed at reducing eye pressure. Treatment options include eye drops, laser treatment and surgery. Mr Moayedi will know which type of treatment is best suited to your own circumstances. Mr Moayedi is one of the most experienced surgeons.
