Glaucoma archive

This Clinica London blog is to inform our patients about the glaucoma condition, the different treatments, and the technology and techniques we use to treat it.

Chronic glaucoma is the most common chronic ophthalmological condition, and also one of the most common causes of treatable blindness in the world. It is important to get a proper diagnosis early to avoid irreversible damage to the optic nerve.

Treatments for this condition range from eye drops, laser treatment, surgery, or specialised treatment provided by the specialist. The treatment will depend on the severity of the condition and the type. At Clinica London, Ms Laura Crawley is our glaucoma specialist. She is highly trained and experienced as an ophthalmic surgeon with publications in peer-reviewed journals and is an author of the Medical Student Eye Book called “Ophthalmology at a Glance” and its second edition published in 2014. To learn more about the condition or Ms Laura Crawley, subscribe to our monthly newsletter, follow our blog or contact us.
