Glaucoma is an eye condition where the nerve connecting the eye to the brain (the optic nerve) is damaged. This can lead to tunneling of the vision.  In most cases, the damage to the optic nerve is due to an increased pressure within the eye.  Treatment to reduce eye pressure can prevent,  or delay,  glaucoma from getting worse.  All adults over 40 should have regular eye checks to detect early glaucoma.

The eye examination will detect early signs of glaucoma before any significant vision loss occurs. 
The eye test will include:

     •     measuring the eye pressure
     •     a look at the back of the eye with a special torch
     •     checking the field of vision

The eye pressure can be lowered, in most cases with a simple eye drop.
I
f the eye pressure is lowered, further damage to the optic nerve is likely to be prevented.
At MM Eyecare we have the latest equipment to detect and monitor glaucoma.
