Glaucoma causes loss of vision and the damage is unfortunately irreversible. Only remedy against this blindness disease is early detection and Narayana Nethralaya is holding a week-long free screening campaign from Monday (March 9 to March 14).
It should be on your essential health check list. But 9 in 10 persons are not aware that they have a condition which will eventually lead to blindness. Periodic checking for Glaucoma will help in preventing loss of vision.
Glaucoma is detected by an eye specialist based on eye pressure and optic nerve examination. These eye tests for Glaucoma are quick and painless. Other tests are measuring the pressure in the eye and checking the field of vision.
Who are at risk and who should go for Glaucoma tests? Glaucoma can be hereditary. If any family member has it, then their immediate family members should undergo screening for Glaucoma. Children, parents, sisters and brothers of Glaucoma patient are most susceptible to have the sight-threatening disease.
