How is glaucoma treated abroad?

  • Diagnostics. Having measured the intraocular pressure and examining the eyeball, the doctor establishes the diagnosis. The duration of the examination is 1 day;
  • Treatment. Ophthalmologists resort to surgical intervention and laser techniques, which are not carried out in the CIS countries. Laser operations are performed out-patient, duration - no more than 20 minutes;
  • Rehabilitation. At this stage, the patient regularly undergoes a medical examination and adheres to his recommendations. Depending on the complexity of the operation, the rehabilitation period takes from 2 to 12 days.

How is glaucoma diagnosed?

The risk of developing glaucoma increases dramatically after 40 years. With the onset of this age, ophthalmologists recommend a regular eye examination.

The danger of glaucoma is in mild symptomatology at the initial stages. More than half of the patients turn to ophthalmologists in Germany, when the eye nerve is destroyed by 50-80%.

2 weeks before the diagnosis, the patient needs to remove contact lenses, no additional preparation is required.

Diagnostics

Purpose of the procedure

Description

Consultation of ophthalmologist

Create a detailed diagnostic and pre-treatment plan

Reception at the expert before diagnostic procedures, consultation after reception of their results

Non-contact tonometry

Measure the intraocular pressure (IOP)

For the procedure, the patient puts his head on the stand of the device and fixes the gaze at one point. IOP is measured by air impact. With high eye sensitivity, analgesia with drops is allowed.

The duration of the procedure is 2-3 minutes.

The norm of IOP (intraocular pressure) is 12-25 mm Hg. Art.

Gonioscopy

Visually examine the anterior chamber of the eye

The structure is studied by a gonioscope and a microscope with a built-in lighting device (slit lamp). The patient is sitting, the head is fixed by focusing the forehead and chin in the lamp stand.

Duration of the study - 15 minutes.

Before the procedure it is necessary to measure IOP

Perimetry

Investigate the field of view and identify "dark" spots

It is carried out with the help of a perimeter - a device of a cup-like shape. The patient's focus is on the label. The computer randomly generates sound signals and forms light flashes, the patient records each flash by pressing a button.

The duration of the procedure is from 5 to 15 minutes

OCT (optical coherence tomography)

Visually examine and assess the condition of the fundus

Scanning the structure of the anterior and posterior segments of the eyeball by a tomograph. The patient focuses on a special label, the tomograph operator scans for 2.5-3 seconds. To improve the quality of the pictures, the pupil is dilated with special drops.

The whole procedure lasts no more than 15 minutes


Methods of treatment of glaucoma

The lack of proper treatment of glaucoma leads to a drop in visual acuity and optic atrophy. The main task of treating glaucoma is to prevent complete loss of vision by reducing IOP (pressure inside the eyeball).

A suitable method of treatment ophthalmologist appoints according to the results of diagnosis.

Treatment method

Description

Indications

Medication Therapy

Decreased IOP with the help of eye drops. Used drugs not available in the CIS countries

With chronic open-angle glaucoma

Laser iridectomy

In the peripheral part of the iris, a small hole is formed by the laser. This balances the pressure in the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye

With an angle-closure glaucoma (primary, secondary or mixed)

Laser trabeculoplasty

Stretching trabeculae (connective tissue plates), which leads to better circulation of the intraocular fluid and a decrease in pressure in the eye chamber

In the early stages of open-angle glaucoma

Micro-penetrating

Trabeculectomy

Removal of trabecular tissue to accelerate outflow from the anterior eye chamber

Appointed in severe cases

Nonpenetrating deep sclerectomy

Surgical method consists in thinning a small part of the cornea - this stimulates the outflow of moisture and reduces IOP

With open-angle disease

Canaloplasty

Non-penetrating surgical method. The doctor cuts the eye and places a microcatheter into the hole to widen the drainage channel. After the procedure, the catheter is removed, the seam is overlapped

The method is effective in severe cases

Technology Trabectome

Microinvasive procedure, during which the ophthalmologist makes a microscopic incision in the area blocking the outflow of the intraocular fluid

It is prescribed in the late stages of glaucoma

Implant EX-PRESS

Between the inner and outer shells of the eye is placed an express mini-shunt that performs the function of drainage and maintains a normal fluid balance

The method is effective even at the latest stages of glaucoma, after unsuccessful trabeculectomy
