Cataract and Glaucoma

Cataract and Glaucoma

The Department specializes on Glaucoma and Cataract management

Glaucoma is an eye disease involving damage to the optic nerve, which sends visual signals to the brain.  When the optic nerve gets damaged, the brain doesn’t receive all the signals being sent.  No one knows exactly what causes this damage, but pressure build -up in the eye is proven to be one of the major risk factors associated with glaucoma.  This can result in a gradual loss of vision and, if not managed, can lead to blindness.  With early detection and your commitment to follow a treatment program recommended by your doctor, your vision may be preserved.
