Frequently Asked Questions

There are several treatments for open-angle glaucoma that focus on lowering eye pressure. Open-angle glaucoma treatment includes the use of eye drops, trabeculoplasty (a laser procedure that helps in improving the drainage of fluid present in the eye; the procedure is conducted through “trabecular meshwork”—the spongy tissue present near the cornea.), and surgery.

The treatment for acute angle-closure glaucoma is to lower down eye pressure with the help of eye drops and oral medications. However, the definitive treatment is to perform a laser iridotomy wherein a hole is carefully placed in the iris to allow fluid drainage inside the eye.

Ocular hypertension is a situation where intraocular pressure treatment is suggested. Intraocular pressure is the pressure inside the eye and in the case of ocular hypertension, it is much higher. If a patient is suspected of ocular hypertension, then there is a higher risk of developing glaucoma. For ocular hypertension treatment, the doctors generally suggest eye drops.

Glaucoma symptoms don't generally show up until it’s too late. The signs vary with the type of glaucoma. In the case of primary open-angle glaucoma, you will notice vision loss, which means that your optic nerve is damaged. Alternatively, in the case of acute angle-closure glaucoma, your vision will be blurred, you will see rings around the lights and the eyes might turn red.
