At CIMO Ophthalmological Clinic we are specialists in Glaucoma surgery by means of micro laser surgery. The ophthalmologist Dr. Julián Cezón is an expert in glaucoma surgery.
The symptoms are
- At first the higher eye pressure does not produce any symptoms.
- Afterwards, peripheral vision can narrow.
- Slight headaches and slight changes in sight are noticed, for example: halos around electric lights or difficulties in getting used to the dark.
- Finally the patient can have tunnel vision, an extreme narrowing of the field of vision making it difficult to see objects on either side when looking straight ahead.
What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a degenerative disease caused by an increase in eye pressure. Inside the eye there is an aqueous liquid which is renewed continually, however, if the draining system fails, the intraocular pressure increases and can damage the optic nerve.
