Our specialized clinic is equipped with modern advanced technology equipment, constantly subjected to quality controls guaranteeing the absolute validity of the results of any ocular glaucoma examination.
Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, which connects the eye to the brain carrying visual information. It is a common condition caused by the disruption of the circulation of the fluid located inside the eye, leading to increased intraocular pressure. The majority of patients with glaucoma do not experience any symptoms until they lose part of their eyesight. The ophtalmologist is able to diagnose glaucoma lesions by observing the eye fundus and the function of the optic nerve. In Ypapanti Eye Clinic we diagnose glaucoma with tonometry, pachymetry, as well as imaging and optic disc analysis with HRT and with the latest technology of optic nerve OCT angiography. Monitoring the course of glaucoma is done with Humphrey visual fields as well as HRT, OCT.
In Ypapanti Eye Clinic glaucoma department we achieve the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma through medication, laser use and surgery. The treatment is crowned with success when it leads to the reduction of pressure and stabilization of the visual fields.
