Initial consultation for glaucoma
This will include full history and examination. The diagnosis will be explained to you with a plan of management as appropriate. A report will be prepared and a copy sent to your GP, opticians and you.
Please bring GP letter, optician’s letter/report, glasses (distance and reading), and any eye drops, medications that you use.
Please bring insurer details and policy number and authorization details if relevant.
Eye drops will be used to dilate the pupils and this will make your vision blurry for few hours. You will not be able to drive for few hours till your eyesight returns to normal.
There are several tests that are relevant for glaucoma and relevant ones will be selected based on individual case.

I feel very confident that l am receiving the best care and advice from Mr. Goyal who has been looking after me since l was diagnosed with high ocular pressure 5 years ago. He is always extremely professional and patient when explaining treatment options and his calm manner is very reassuring. Mr. Goyal always responds promptly to emails when l have any concerns and genuinely cares for his patients. He was recommended to me as one of the best glaucoma consultants and l feel very fortunate to be under his care.
I have been receiving care from Mr Goyal for over 5 years and have had cataract surgery and treatment and management for glaucoma. Throughout this time he has always fully explained my treatment options and has been available to answer any questions. I know my future care and treatment in in good hands
For nearly the last two years I have been treated by Mr. Goyal for an aggressive type of glaucoma, and he is committed to doing everything he can to help my sight, taking a personal interest in the case. He is always punctual and attentive and makes sure I understand what we have been discussing. He carries out his procedures in a very professional but caring manner.
Mr Goyal’s expertise in Glaucoma treatment and the manner of delivery of his services is second to none.
I was very satisfied throughout with Mr Goyal’s clear explanations, patience, calm and reassuring approach during my procedure and with the outcome. Blind in my left eye – and a glaucoma sufferer – it was hugely important to me that my right eye functioned as well as was possible for a 83 year old. As a result, DVLA have sanctioned a 3-year driving licence in place of the previous annual renewal application … Excellent!!
