Glaucoma Services

The Glaucoma service at Amanat Eye Hospital combines state of the art technology with world class expertise.

Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse over time. The increased pressure, called intraocular pressure, can damage the optic nerve, which transmits images to your brain. If the damage continues, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss.

    What is Ahmed Glaucoma Valve (AGV)

    Implantation of Ahmed glaucoma valve is an effective surgical technique to reduce intraocular pressure in patients affected with glaucoma. While in the past, the use of this device was reserved to glaucoma refractory to multiple filtration surgical procedures, up-to-date mounting experience has encouraged its use also as a primary surgery for selected cases. Implantation of Ahmed glaucoma valve can be challenging for the surgeon, especially in patients who already underwent previous multiple surgeries. Several tips have to be acquired by the surgeon, and a long learning curve is always needed. Although the valve mechanism embedded in the Ahmed glaucoma valve decreases the risk of postoperative hypotony-related complications, it does not avoid the need of a careful follow-up. Complications related to this type of surgery include early and late postoperative hypotony, excessive capsule fibrosis around the plate, erosion of the tube or plate edge, and very rarely infection.

    Diagnosis for Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is generally described as a loss of retinal ganglion cell axons. This loss is routinely diagnosed by the presence of thinning of the optic nerve neuroretinal rim, peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), and/or inner layers of the macula. Because these structural changes may precede perimetric visual field changes, sensitive imaging tools can improve physicians’ ability to detect early glaucoma and allow timely intervention to prevent vision loss.
