6-Glaucoma treatment in Iran
Glaucoma is damage to the optic nerve, and can cause blindness that is irreversible. There are several ways to treat glaucoma, including the following:
The most common initial treatment for glaucoma is using of pills and eye drops that can lower eye pressure and dry out the eye fluid.
This procedure may be prescribed by your surgeon at any time to help dry out the eye fluid. Anesthetic eye drops are injected into your eyes before laser treatment at your doctor's office or clinic. The laser causes multiple burns that drain the fluid better. If both eyes need laser treatment, treatment is scheduled for a few weeks after the first eye heals.
Surgery is recommended if medication to control pressure on the eye is not effective. In this procedure, your surgeon makes small injections around the eyes to numb the eyes, and then creates a small drainage hole using a surgical instrument. This surgery is outpatient and is performed under local anesthesia.
