What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is high pressure in the eye. This pushes on to the optic nerve fibres leading to their destruction. These nerve fibers are responsible for vision. Loosing them leads to defects in the field of vision. The most common cause for the rise in pressure inside the eye is blockage of the drainage channel. With nowhere to exit the fund builds up inside the eye. This is like a blocked drain leading to overflow of the basin.

Glaucoma can be followed for progression. It can be by subjective test like visual field. We have one of the latest windows based machine to help you do this test easily. This latest generation of machine can also track changes in changes in your visual field.

How does IStent for glaucoma surgery work?

You may have heard of stents for the heart. Like those stents Istent is placed to overcome the blockage by providing an alternate path for flow of the liquid from the eye. Currently this FDA approved device is to be used at time of cataract surgery.A surgical gonioscope is deployed to visualize the angle of the eye. The titanium stent is placed very carefully in the anterior trabecular meshwork. There is no pain involved and no one can see it. Total internal reflection prevents it to be see other than with a gonioscope. It can even be performed with Pi in Eye.

Lets try to save vision one eye at a time.
