Glaucoma

Glaucoma at Oaks Hospital

Glaucoma is the name given to a group of eye conditions that cause a permanent loss of vision. It is one of the world's leading causes of blindness.

Many people don't realise they have glaucoma as it initially affects their peripheral or side vision which is not as sensitive as the central vision, it happens gradually and, there are usually no other warning signs.

Regular eye tests are important in detecting the early onset of glaucoma. Glaucoma treatment following diagnosis will prevent further sight loss from happening.

Here are Ramsay we treat patients with many eye conditions. Our skilled ophthalmologists use the best practices and offer the latest treatments including eye surgery based on your individual needs and diagnosis. We commonly offer treatment for glaucoma to ensure that patients don’t further lose their eyesight.
