Glaucoma

The silent thief of sight.

Glaucoma is a chronic disease triggered by increased ocular pressure and progressive optic nerve damage that can lead to severe vision impairment. Glaucoma is a dangerous disease due to the absence of warning signs and symptoms. For this reason it has earned the nickname “The Silent Thief of Sight”: The first visual disturbances related to glaucoma typically appear after about 30% of the optic nerve fibers have been damaged. Only at this point does the patient recognize visual disturbances such as peripheral vision loss or the inability to read.

Ocular pressure–performed routinely during the ophthalmology examination–is the most important test for diagnosing glaucoma. The higher the pressure, the greater the risk of glaucoma.

Glaucoma therapy strives to reduce intraocular pressure, primarily through the administration of beta-blockers or prostaglandin-based eye drops. Once pharmacologic therapy is no longer sufficient, laser or surgical intervention is performed.

A need, a desire, a wish…

We feel betrayed when something silently harms us. But this should not prevent us from taking care of ourselves. Also to prevent a silent pathology such as glaucoma from damaging our sight and our lives. To ensure the future health and wellbeing of your vision, regular check-ups are key.

Technology and Solutions

Regular ocular pressure checks, periodic visual field evaluations, and OCT measurements to assess nerve fiber thickness allow your doctor to monitor your glaucoma and optimize therapy. If the glaucoma worsens or no longer responds to eye drops, laser and surgical solutions may help.

Laser Therapies

Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) for the treatment of chronic glaucoma, and the Nd: YAG laser iridotomy for the treatment and prevention of acute glaucoma: almost impossible names for fast, safe, painless and parasurgical solutions. They are performed in the clinic, after the administration of anesthetic eye drops. No hospital stay. No recovery time

How much does it cost?

The cost of a glaucoma laser treatment is comparable to that of a tablet, for example one with an apple on it…. Take care of your eyes so that you can enjoy digital technology both today and in the future.

Microinvasive Surgery for Glaucoma (MiGs)

We use micro-valves or micro-stents to prevent eye pressure from increasing beyond safe levels. These are interventions performed in a sterile environment after a few anesthetic eye drops. A few minutes of treatment and… Recovery is almost immediate

How much does it cost?

The cost of MiGs intervention is comparable to the annual car insurance cost for a high-end SUV. So for the same price at which you protect your car, you can similarly protect your vision.
