Eye pressure

 

Eye pressure: ophthalmology’s challenge

 

You can only have your eye pressure controlled by a doctor during an appointment scheduled 3 to 6 months in advance.

 

Getting your eye pressure checked any other time means hospitalization.

 

As for your child, he/she can only have his/her eye pressure measured in hospital under general anesthesia.

 

And yet this monitoring is a key component in adjusting your treatment and in assessing its efficiency in slowing down the disease or preventing further deterioration of your condition.

 

Sound like a nightmare?

 

Well, it’s the daily reality of intraocular pressure measurement for 67 million people living with glaucoma.
