Glaucoma is an eye disease that is responsible for many cases of blindness every year. It is related to a rise in pressure inside the eye, which can gradually damage the optic nerve and ultimately, if not properly treated, can progress into blindness. It is the peripheral (or outer) vision that is first affected. This can make early detection more difficult. Eventually, the entire visual field, including central vision, is lost.
At the Sydney Eye Clinic, we thoroughly assess, monitor and treat glaucoma using the best technology available.
