Glaucoma treatment bundaberg, vision, Dr Jai Eye Centre

Glaucoma is an ocular condition that can be a silent cause of vision loss. It results from damage to the optic nerve typically from raised intra-ocular pressure, which is pressure in the eye.

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, SLT, Dr Jai Eye Centre, Bundaberg

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a type of eye surgery that treats open-angle glaucoma. With glaucoma, aqueous humour does not drain properly from the front of the eye. Pressure builds in the eye, which damages the optic nerve.

Glaucoma Facts, Dr Jai Eye Centre, Bundaberg

Glaucoma Facts: Glaucoma is the name given to a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve that links the retina to the brain. Often, glaucoma is associated with too much pressure inside the eyeball. It is a leading cause of damage to vision or blindness in people over 40 but can affect people of any age. If glaucoma is detected early, treatment can prevent or reduce vision loss in most patients.

What is Laser Iridotomy, Dr Jai Eye Centre, Bundaberg

What is Laser Iridotomy? Laser Iridotomy is a type of eye surgery that treats angle-closure glaucoma. Angle-closure glaucoma is when the iris blocks fluid (called aqueous) from leaving the front of the eye as it should. Pressure in the eye rises very quickly and the optic nerve is damaged. This is a serious problem that can cause blindness. Laser Iridotomy helps fluid drain properly again, lowering your eye pressure.
