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.

Do you feel elevated intraocular pressure?

Generally, glaucoma is only diagnosed when it is advanced because patients cannot usually feel the elevated pressure in the eye. The recommended check-ups for older people and those with an inherited predisposition only take place a few times a year. With the long intervals between examinations, glaucoma can progress - unseen and unnoticed - for months. The examinations in the doctor's office are also only a momentary snapshot of the patient’s condition. Intraocular pressure can vary over the course of the day though and elevated pressure is often only detected by chance. But because the nerve damage is permanent, a continual monitoring with a 24-hour pressure profile is especially desirable.
