Ophthalmology and Glaucoma

Best Eye Care

Being able to see clearly is a blessing. Vision is a precious gift of nature to the mankind. With healthy eyes we can see our surroundings, enjoy the people around us, and even glimpse our own features in the mirror. Although people with dimmed or no vision manage very well, being able to see clearly is a wonderful asset in life.

Never take your vision for granted. Protect it carefully by getting your eyes checked for any of the reasons, or at any time you feel that an examination is warranted. If in doubt, ask your doctor or another medical professional.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that leads to optic nerve damage and irreversible loss of vision.

 Even individuals with good vision can suffer from glaucoma. In fact, most forms of glaucoma come with no symptoms and lead to no change in vision until the later stages of the condition. Often patients are surprised when they are diagnosed with glaucoma, because of the lack of symptoms. While the initial stages of glaucoma may not lead to change in vision, the later stages can lead to loss of vision due to irreversible damage to the optic nerve. It is for this reason that it is important to approach a reputed eye hospital for the early detection and treatment of glaucoma before it leads to loss of vision. 

 Glaucoma can affect individuals of all ages and not just the elderly. But yes, it is true that the chances of glaucoma increase with age, with a huge portion of open-angle glaucoma cases being age-related. But that doesn’t mean glaucoma spares younger individuals – in fact, glaucoma can occur even in newborns!  One has to be treated for Glaucoma, otherwise there will be loss of vision for sure.

The absence of symptoms is not a reason to not seek treatment as most forms of glaucoma may not show symptoms. One should approach a reputed eye hospital so as to undergo treatment like lasers, medications, glaucoma surgery etc so as to slow the advancement of the disease as much as possible. While it is true that treatment of glaucoma may come with side effects, dedicated and experienced professionals, like those at Shalby Hospital in Ahmedabad, will see to it that the side effects are minimized while delaying the advancement of the disease as much as possible. No wonder, Shalby Hospital, today enjoys the reputation of the best eye hospital in Ahmedabad.
