Glaucoma Clinic

Glaucoma also known as the silent thief of sight can affect your peripheral vision leading to tunnel vision. At Optiplex we can help you diagnose and manage your glaucoma.

After each consultation you will be provided a report where you can share with your GP or Ophthalmologist.

  • Glaucoma comes in many types. The most common types are Open Angle Glaucoma, Closed Angle Glaucoma and Normal Tension Glaucoma. All types of glaucoma are caused from eye pressure damaging the optic nerve causing a slow loss of peripehral vision.

    Initial management of glaucoma involves medicated eye drops or laser treatment to lower the intra ocular pressure. Severe glaucoma that does not respond to initial therapy will require surgical intervention.

    Once a target pressure has been decided, we will monitor you every 6 months to make sure there is no progression in your glaucoma.
