What is glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a group of conditions in which there is damage to the optic nerve, the nerve that carries visual signals from the eye to the brain. Glaucoma damage is irreversible and can eventually lead to blindness.

Damage is caused by a build-up of fluid (aqueous humour) within the eye, causing the pressure inside the eye to rise. Some people can get glaucoma with ‘normal’ pressure as well.

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world and in the UK. However, blindness in the vast majority of patients can be prevented by early diagnosis and effective treatment.

Patient Feedback

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!!
