Treatment Options

Medical management is aimed at reducing intra ocular pressure by improving aqueous outflow and reducing the production of aqueous with the help of good efficiency eye drops and systemic medication if required. Reducing the pressure in the eye reduces the progression of visual field loss. Standard practice has been to move on to surgery, if medications are ineffective or if the glaucoma patient has difficulty in adhering to the medical therapy recommendations.

In Glaucoma, OCT helps to detect and measure

  • Morphological changes
  • Thickness of retina & retinal nerve fibre layer
  • Retinal Volume
  • The various parameters of the optic disc
  • The analysis of retinal fiber layer and optic nerve head aids in identification of early glaucomatous loss
