The only way to be sure that you are unaffected by glaucoma is to undergo a comprehensive eye examination. Our eye clinic is well-equipped to diagnose glaucoma as early as possible and to arrest the disease in its earliest stage in the hands of experienced staffs.
The Humphrey Visual Field is a special automated procedure used to measure the entire
area of peripheral vision that can be seen.
Lights of varying intensities are presented in different parts of the visual field while patient focuses on a central fixating light. Patient is asked to press a button whenever he or she is able to see the lights presented. The perception of these lights is charted and then compared to results of a healthy eye of the same age group in order to determine if any damage has occurred. This examination is performed easily in less than 15 minutes, and is effective in diagnosing and monitoring the progress of glaucoma.
Glaucoma patients will often undergo this test on a regular basis in order to determine the progression of the disease.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an advanced technology used to produce
cross-sectional images of the retina. These images can help with the detection and
treatment of serious eye condition such as macular holes, macular swelling and optic
OCT uses technology that is similar to CT scans of internal organs, using a scattering of light to rapidly scan the eye to create an accurate cross-section. Each layer of the retina can be evaluated and measured through this image.
The OCT examination takes about less than 5 mins to perform.
