Chiari Medicine & Eye Clinic
Chiari Medicine & Eye Clinic is a leading eye care clinic in Australia dedicated to providing comprehensive eye care services for all ages. Our team of experienced ophthalmologists and optometrists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of eye conditions, including glaucoma, retinal diseases, and other eye diseases.
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve, the part of the eye that sends visual information to the brain. This damage can lead to vision loss, and if left untreated, glaucoma can eventually lead to blindness.
There are many different types of glaucoma, but the most common type is open-angle glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma is a progressive disease that typically has no early symptoms. This is why it is important to have regular eye exams, even if you do not have any symptoms.
Other types of glaucoma include angle-closure glaucoma, congenital glaucoma, and secondary glaucoma. Angle-closure glaucoma is a more sudden and severe type of glaucoma that can cause acute vision loss. Congenital glaucoma is present at birth, and secondary glaucoma is caused by other eye diseases or conditions.
Treatment for Glaucoma
There are a number of different treatments available for glaucoma. The goal of treatment is to lower the pressure inside the eye to prevent further damage to the optic nerve.
The most common treatment for glaucoma is eye drops. There are many different types of eye drops available, and your doctor will choose the right type for you based on your individual needs. Other treatments for glaucoma include laser surgery and surgery to create a drainage channel in the eye.
The retina is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. It converts light into electrical signals that are sent to the brain, where they are interpreted as images.
There are many different types of retinal diseases, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, and retinal detachment. AMD is the leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 60. Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes that can damage the retina. Retinal detachment is a serious condition in which the retina separates from the back of the eye.
Treatment for Retinal Diseases
The treatment for retinal diseases depends on the specific type of disease. Some retinal diseases can be treated with eye drops, laser surgery, or surgery. Other retinal diseases cannot be cured, but they can be treated to slow the progression of the disease and preserve vision.
