Glaucoma Disease & Surgery

أمراض الجلوكوما وجراحتها

What is glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases which result in damage to the optic nerve and vision loss. It is usually associated with elevated intraocular pressure. Side vision may begin to decrease followed by central vision resulting in blindness if not treated.Lack of clear symptoms make screening via regular eye check-ups important.

What is the treatment of glaucoma?

The modern goals of glaucoma management are to avoid glaucomatous damage and nerve damage, and preserve visual field and total quality of life for patients, with minimal side effects. This requires appropriate diagnostic techniques and follow-up examinations, and judicious selection of treatments for the individual patient. Although intraocular pressure is only one of the major risk factors for glaucoma, lowering it via various pharmaceuticals and/or surgical techniques is currently the mainstay of glaucoma treatment. There are several types of treatment such as Medication, Laser, Surgery, Canaloplasty, drainage implants.

Our Technologies

iStent

is a relatively new procedure that involves inserting a tiny hollow metal tube (stent) into the trabecular meshwork in the eye. It is less invasive surgery compared to other more complex drainage surgeries and it has a faster recovery time. Eye pressure was reduced by about 35 per cent in the patients having iStent surgery.

Non-penetrating Deep Sclerectomy

Non-penetrating deep sclerectomy has become an increasingly popular alternative to standard trabeculectomy throughout the world, largely because of the lower risk of early postoperative morbidity. It requires highly skilled glaucoma specialist to perform the surgery.

Ahmed Valve Implant

Glaucoma drainage devices are designed to divert aqueous humor from the anterior chamber to an external reservoir, where a fibrous capsule forms about 4-6 weeks after surgery and regulates flow. These devices have shown success in controlling intraocular pressure in eyes with previously failed trabeculectomy and in eyes with insufficient conjunctiva and pediatric glaucomas.
