Glaucoma is an eye disease. Glaucoma occurs as a result of an increase in intraocular pressure, often leading to atrophy of the fundus and the optic nerve head, which is responsible for perception by the organs of vision.
In the absence of treatment for glaucoma, there are irreversible visual impairments that can lead to complete blindness.
Glaucoma treatment with folk remedies and conservative methods
Treatment of glaucoma with folk remedies and conservative methods with drops and tablets does not cure glaucoma, while the destructive processes, although slowing down, continue to be active.
As the practice of curing glaucoma shows, surgery in combination with therapeutic treatment is one of the most effective methods of treating glaucoma.
Laser treatment for glaucoma
Laser treatment of glaucoma is a modern and effective method of treating glaucoma. In laser treatment of glaucoma, the eyeball is not opened, that is, the treatment is performed without cutting the eye wall. Laser glaucoma treatment is a painless method for treating glaucoma.
