Department of Glaucoma

Our Glaucoma Clinic is extremely well equipped for early diagnosis and Prompt treatment of glaucoma. People above 40 years of age can undergo Glaucoma screening in our MEH as a routine procedure. Early detection and treatment can prevent blindness due to Glaucoma.

This is the first institute in Trichy having optic nerve head analyzer.

It is a condition that causes damage to the optic nerve, which transmits information from the eye to the brain. It usually (but not always) is associated with high intraocular pressure (IOP). Left untreated, glaucoma can cause blindness. It is ‘a silent thief of sight’. A healthy optic nerve is necessary for good vision.

Causes of Glaucoma

The passages that normally allow fluid within your eye to drain become clogged or blocked. Fluid within your eye then builds up and increases pressure on the optic nerve. The nerve fibers and blood vessels in the optic nerve are easily damaged by this pressure, resulting in vision loss.

An injury, infection or tumor in and around the eye, matured cataract can increase the intraocular pressure.

Types of Tests

Intra Ocular Pressure

Visual Field analysis (check side vision)

Optic Nerve Head analyser

Pachymetry (measure corneal thickness)

YAG laser

Optic Coherence Tomography

Treatment facilities

Yag Laser PI

Surgical PI

Trabeculectomy for Congenital Glaucoma

Trabeculectomy for Adult Glaucoma

Valve Procedures

Combined Surgery

Modern IOLs for Glaucoma patients with Cataract

Glaucoma cannot be cured, only controlled.

Vision lost due to glaucoma cannot be recovered.

The persons above the age of 40 have their eyes examined periodically to detect glaucoma early is essential.

Glaucoma is not an infectious disease, but may be hereditary. So, if any one in the family has glaucoma, it is advisable that the rest of the family members have their eyes examined, periodically.

AVA - Advanced Vision Analyzer


Moving forward in perimetry, we can now perform it without a traditional exam lane. The AVA - Advanced Vision Analyzer is a small, battery-operated auto perimeter that can perform visual field threshold measurements. It is not only completely portable, but it does not require a separate dark room, hence make the patients comfortable without much hassle.

Patient friendly

Ergonomically designed which allows a high degree of flexibility in patient position. They can even take the test reclined. This is particularly advantageous for aging and disabled patients. The AVA Advanced Vision Analyzer also generates a patient-friendly version of the report that helps you explain the diagnosis better.

The AVA Advanced Vision Analyzer offers

Foveal threshold testing

Test patters 24-2 and 30-2

Test strategies including screening, full threshold, Elisar Zest, and Elisar Fast

Fixation monitoring, eye-tracking system

Patient friendly

The fully automated scanner captures high resolution, accurate imaging using multiple modalities — TrueColor, red and blue imaging, red-free, infrared and blue autofluorescence.

EIDON AF offers the advantage of capturing high quality widefield images, up to 110°, using its mosaic functionality. This capability is available for all imaging modalities (TrueColor, IR, FAF) and plays a crucial part in supporting discovery and diagnosis of ocular pathologies in the periphery.

Fast and Fully Automated Retinal Imaging Process

In the automatic mode, the scanner auto-aligns to a patient’s pupil, focuses on the retina, and captures high-quality images in any of the modality combinations available: IR, color and FAF. The EIDON manual mode offers additional versatility to concentrate on specific layers of the fundus and further into the periphery using the external fixation target.

Patient Comfort and Convenience

The quick examination time makes it easy, and comfortable for patients. The images can be captured with a minimal pupil size of 2.5 mm, making it possible to obtain high-quality images without dilation.

Image Sharing and Viewing Made Easy

EIDON AF multi-touch tablet makes magnification and review easy. The EIDON AF Remote Viewer (RV) makes remote data review effortless, allowing any computer or laptop on the local area network (LAN) to review EIDON AF images remotely. This enables data access and detailed analysis on multiple review stations without additional licensing.
