Treatments and Medications of Glaucoma

Glaucoma treatment is based on the nature and severity of each case. Normally it cannot be cured, however it can be managed. Pills, laser procedures, eye drops and surgical operations are used to stop or control further harm from occurring. Regular eye examinations are much important to recognize progression and to stop vision loss. As glaucoma can get at worst without being aware of it, to achieve a lower "target eye pressure", treatment will probably need to be changed at time to time.

Several innovative approaches to glaucoma surgery show promise for better safety. As with all new procedures, time and much follow-up study are required to see which ones will remain useful for helping glaucoma patients long-term. 

Glaucoma is usually treated with eye drops taken often many times each day, whenever needed in combination with pills. Circulation of eye fluid can be altered, and eye pressure can be lowered by these medications, either by increasing the flow leaving the drainage angle, or by decreasing the production of fluid within the eye.

Several medications are currently in use to treat glaucoma. Eye drops used in managing glaucoma decrease eye pressure by helping the eye’s fluid to drain better and/or decreasing the amount of fluid made by the eye. Drugs to treat glaucoma are arranged by their dynamic fixing. These include: prostaglandin analogs, beta blockers, alpha agonists, and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors. Blend drugs are accessible for patients who require more than one sort of prescription.
