Glaucoma is a progressive condition that results in optic nerve damage. It can also be
defined as an eye disease that damages the optic nerve, which connects your eye to
your brain. Over time, damage to the optic nerve can result in vision loss. The degree
of intraocular pressure, the severity of the disease, the age of onset, and other
determinants of susceptibility (family history of glaucoma) influence the risk of
blindness for people with this condition.
Glaucoma Treatment at KABERA
At Kabera, we are proud to offer a personalized approach to glaucoma surgery
tailored to your needs and your lifestyle for every patient within budget.
We offer two different treatment procedures
1. Oral Medicines
Open-angle glaucoma can be treated with the use of oral medication. Although it is
most effective when used for a short time, the efficacy of this medication can
diminish over time, and it often has some unwanted side effects.
2. Eye Drops
The most popular kind of glaucoma treatment are eye drops. If eye drops are
recommended, it is highly important that you keep using them as directed.
3. Laser Treatment
The treatment of open and closed angle glaucoma is done using different lasers.
Laser can be applied to the iris and trabecular meshwork to allow watery fluid to
flow more efficiently into the eye, and drain more effectively into the eye through
the usual drainage channels.
- Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT)
- Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI)
- Cyclodiode Laser Treatment
- Argon Laser Treatment
The current glaucoma treatment model is being changed by a new method of
treating the disease, known as “minimally invasive glaucoma surgery” or “MIGS.”
Small incisions are used in this process to put microscopic instruments within the eye
to reduce the pressure within the eye.
- XEN Gel Stent
- iStent Inject
5. Conventional Surgery
When disease cannot be controlled using medications or laser, or the patient is
intolerant of the strategies mentioned above, surgery may be required. As glaucoma
worsens, the necessity for surgery increases.
