Effective Glaucoma Surgery in Mumbai

What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a condition that causes harm to your eye's optic nerve and became dangerous when kept untreated. It is frequently connected with the development of  pressure inside the eye. Glaucoma has a tendency to be inherited and may not appear until the desired time.

The created pressure which is called as the intraocular pressure, can harm the optic nerve. This optic nerve is responsible for the transmission of images to the brain. If this damage to the optic nerve due to the pressure continues, the glaucoma can leads to the permanent vision loss of the patient. So without treatment glaucoma can lead to total blindness within a few years.

About 50% of the people with glaucoma doesn't show any early indications or pain due to this pressure. So every one should see an eye doctor regularly as possible since this can diagnose glaucoma at its early stage and thus can avoid the danger of losing the vision permanently.
