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.
