What is normal eye pressure?

For most people eye pressure of 10-21mmHg is considered as normal.
Some people naturally have thick central corneas (measured by ultrasound pachymetry). Their eye pressures can be measured higher than 21mmHg and this can be normal for some of them.

Conversely some people naturally have thinner corneas and in this situation eye pressures less than 21mmHg can be abnormal and cause glaucoma.

Patient Feedback

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!!

My experience with glaucoma was very difficult. However, the care, professionalism and attention of Mr. Goyal have been instrumental in saving my eye. I would definitely recommend him to any patient
