The normal eye pressure is between 10 – 21 mmHg, and in individuals diagnosed with glaucoma, it should be below 19 mmHg.

If the diagnosis of glaucoma is established, then lifelong therapy is necessary. If at a certain stage of treatment, surgical intervention is performed for better pressure control, then over 60% of those operated on no longer depend on drop therapy.

According to our protocols, after laser treatment, eye drops are still used but with reduced intensity and to a lesser extent.

Surgery does not cure glaucoma; it aims to stabilize intraocular pressure. After surgery, in about 40% of cases, anti-glaucoma therapy continues to maintain stable intraocular pressure.

Glaucoma can be hereditary, so for a patient with a positive family history of glaucoma, we recommend a comprehensive glaucoma evaluation and regular check-ups.

Eye pressure generally does not cause pain, except in cases of significantly elevated levels. That’s why glaucoma is often referred to as the “silent thief of sight.” Additionally, the pain threshold varies for each patient.

No. Glaucoma is a syndrome characterized by elevated eye pressure, changes in the visual field, and changes in the optic nerve. In certain cases, eye pressure may be within normal limits, but there may still be changes in the visual field and optic nerve. This condition is referred to as normotensive glaucoma.

In the classic form of open-angle glaucoma, the exact cause is still unknown. In other forms, there is often closure of the angle in the eye (angle-closure glaucoma), or glaucoma may occur as a result of diabetes, central retinal vein occlusion, inflammation inside the eye, bleeding in the anterior chamber of the eye, eye injury, or prolonged use of corticosteroid eye drops (secondary forms of glaucoma).

According to scientific research, there is no direct connection between eye pressure and blood pressure.

It is considered that stress can indirectly influence an increase in eye pressure.
