Lowering and stabilizing intraocular pressure

Approximately 1 million people in Germany have glaucoma. By the time a person with glaucoma first detects a deterioration in eyesight, his/her optic nerve has already suffered permanent damage. One of the main causes is an elevated intraocular pressure, which the affected patient usually does not even feel. As a result, one of the most important goals in the treatment of glaucoma is to monitor intraocular pressure regularly and when necessary to take steps to lower and stabilize it.

Continual monitoring saves vision

Only a controlled stable intraocular pressure can prevent progression of the glaucoma. Frequent, consistent monitoring permits your doctor to react quickly, helping to protect your vision. Therefore, the best solution could be to measure and monitor the intraocular pressure by the glaucoma patient.

The intraocular pressure

The intraocular pressure has a significant effect on the blood flow to the optic nerve head. It varies depending on age. Normally, it is between 10mmHg and 20mmHg (mmHg = millimeter mercury, the unit traditionally used in medicine to record pressure). Any pressure over 20mmHg is generally considered to be too high.
