Glaucoma

Glaucoma has been aptly named the ' silent thief'.. Uma eye clinic has always been in the forefront of embracing new techniques and technology, be it in diagnosis or treatment. Glaucoma is a disease which causes irreversible damage to both the nerve and to sight. A transient rise in the Intraocular Pressure (IOP) leads to the damage of the optic nerve. So it is imperative to identify people who might develop the disease or catch the disease early in order to prevent further damage.

Uma eye clinic currently uses very advanced diagnostic devices to detect, analyze and document glaucoma. The Spectral Domain OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)analyses the ganglion cell layer to determine structural damage even before the functional loss.

The ORA (Ocular Response Analyser) is used to take diagnosis and followability to a higher level. The Humphrey’s Visual Field Analyser a gold standard in glaucoma diagnosis is used to complement the findings of this highly sophisticated equipment. Uma Eye Clinic is one of the earliest to start using the SLT (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty). Currently, SLT is a painless LASER outpatient procedure taking lesser than 5 minutes to perform. The patient can resume normal activities on leaving the clinic. This laser treatment helps to reduce the IOP thereby reducing the dependence on eye drops.

Our clinic currently has the largest series of Ologen implants in glaucoma surgery. Ologen is a biodegradable scaffolding which greatly enhances the success and safety of a glaucoma surgery.

World Class Operation Theatres.+ve pressure, laminar airflow, 3 micron HEPA filter, DuPont Walls, anti-static flooring make the theatre conform to Organ Transplant Standards. And last but not the least, innovative and pioneering surgeons at UMA EYE CLINIC have been masters in the art and science of phacoemulsification for more than 25 years.
