Cataracts are clouding of the Natural lens in the eye, which can cause blurry vision and may lead to blindness. Though Cataract Surgery is not a painful condition.

The optic nerve carries information from the eye to the brain, and is located in the back of the eye. Glaucoma is the name given to a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve. It is characterized by progressive damage to the optic nerve of the eye, the most common cause being increased pressure in the eye. In fact glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. At first, patients lose side (peripheral) vision. But if the disease is not treated, vision loss may worsen, leading to total blindness over time.
The most common forms of Glaucoma are:
1. Open angle glaucoma
2. Angle closure glaucoma
The treatment depends on accurate and early detection and success depends on severity of the disease at presentation. Glaucoma patients don’t experience any symptoms and are unaware of vision loss until severe damage has occurred. On rare occasions, acute rise in eye pressure occurs and needs immediate medical attention. Glaucoma can be treated as well as controlled but cannot be completely cured. However if left untreated, it can lead to permanent blindness. Most forms of this illness are progressive and need long term care. At Geetha eye hospital, we provide the latest tools for the diagnosis of glaucoma. We are equipped with the latest lasers and machinery used for the surgical management of glaucoma.
