Glaucoma Symptoms

The sign and symptoms of Glaucoma differ by subtypes. OAG symptoms includes an increase in IOP, open anterior chamber angle and optic disc changes seen on clinical examination such as high cup to disc ratio, cup to disc ratio asymmetry between eyes, vertical elongation of the cup, etc. while narrow-angle glaucoma symptoms are intense eye pain, headaches or migraines, fuzzy lighting or halo figures, pupil dilation, vision troubles, bloodshot eyes, and physical sickness.


Glaucoma Risk Factors

The risk factors of Glaucoma include older age, family history of glaucoma, African ancestry, nearsightedness, high IOP, low blood pressure, use of topical corticosteroids, inflammation, and tumor.


Glaucoma Treatment

The only form of treatment that has been shown to be efficacious and is generally accepted for the prevention of glaucoma progression is reduction of the intraocular pressure. In patients with open-angle glaucoma, the intraocular pressure can be reduced with regularly applied eyedrops, laser therapy, and/or surgery.


Glaucoma Market: Treatment Market Report

The main goal of glaucoma treatment is to increase the quality of life through the reduction of IOP to preserve visual function. In the process of IOP reduction, an ideal medication should have a schedule that is simple to follow, be least interrupting with a patient’s life, highly tolerable and affordable. However, the medical treatment of glaucoma has associated side effects, complications, and costs.

There are several risk factors like age >60 years, genetic predisposition, certain eye characteristics (such as a pupillary defect, thin cornea, myopia), low educational status, smoking, African descent, and visual problems, which are associated with this indication and, thus, the treatment pattern varies accordingly.


Glaucoma Market: Report Insights

There are three mainstays for lowering eye pressure, i.e. medication, laser, and surgery. The two types of laser treatments currently used are Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) and Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty (ALT). Surgery for Glaucoma includes Cataract Surgery, Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS), Trabeculectomy, Drainage Implant Surgery, and Ciliary Body Ablation. There is an array of medications to lower the intraocular pressure in Glaucoma, which are divided into five major classes, i.e., Prostaglandin Analogs, Rho kinase inhibitor, Beta Blockers, Nitric oxides, Diuretics, Cholinergic Agonists (Parasympthomimetics), and Alpha Agonists. Monotherapy and combination therapy should be given for effective treatment of glaucoma.
