Glaucoma Eye Surgery in Pune

Glaucoma ,what is known commonly as “kaala motia”” or “ Kaach Bindu”.

It is the chronic stealer of vision.It is the disease of optic nerve cuased by increase in eye pressure. To retain configuration and biodynamic functions of the eye, a fluid is formed inside the eye. This fluid is called aqueous humour. This fluid is being continuously formed and simultaneously drained out of the eye. There is a very delicate balance of inflow and out flow of this fluid. As long as this balance is retained, the eye functions normally. This balance can be disturbed if either the over production of aqueous or reduced drainage resulting increase in pressure that presses on the blood vessels that bring blood supply to the optic nerve, resulting in poor nutrition and oxygenation of the optic nerve.

This process eventually kills the optic nerve fibres. That causes blind spots in periphery of vision called scotoma eventually affecting the central vision. Unfortunately, patients rarely notice these blind areas in their side vision until significant optic nerve damage has occurred. In advanced cases, total visual loss can result as the entire optic nerve may be damaged.

Unlike cataract, this loss of sight is permanent and irrecoverable. Fortunately, this can be prevented if glaucoma is diagnosed early and treated before major damage happens. Proper and periodic examination of the eyes by competent specialist is of utmost importance for all adults, especially over the age of 40 years.
