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.

What damages the optic nerve head?

The high intraocular pressure inhibits a steady flow of blood to the optic nerve head. Its sensitive nerve fibers are squeezed together and die. As a person with glaucoma, you experience this as a gradual deterioration of your eyesight, with your peripheral vision becoming narrower and narrower. When the vision loss becomes so great that you notice it, the glaucoma is unfortunately already quite advanced and the nerve cells of the optic nerve head irreparably damaged. Continual monitoring of the intraocular pressure makes it possible to do something to prevent this.
