Glaucoma is a group of diseases involving progressive damage to the optic nerve head at the back of the eye. In persons with glaucoma, the damage generally progresses slowly and gradually narrows down the field of vision. The damage is painless, and patients in the early stages of the condition may not notice their field of vision is restricted.
By the time patients notice the glaucoma-related narrowing of their visual field, the disease may have progressed to an advanced stage. Glaucoma usually affects both eyes. When left untreated, it may have serious consequences such as major impairment of vision or, in the worst case, total blindness. Glaucoma takes many different forms, the most common of which is primary open angle glaucoma. This type usually occurs in the elderly. Risk factors for glaucoma include increased intraocular pressure, age, a family history of glaucoma, being short-sighted, lens exfoliation syndrome, and other conditions such as high blood pressure.
Regular examinations by an ophthalmologist are the best way to detect glaucoma in time. During an appointment, an eye examination is performed to check for any glaucoma. There is no cure for glaucoma, and any resulting changes to the visual field are permanent. However, the progression of the condition can be delayed, thus slowing down or preventing further damage to the optic nerve. The main aim in the treatment of glaucoma is to reduce intraocular pressure. Your doctor will assess which treatment is most suitable for you.

Orton’s ophthalmological services were established to meet the challenges of modern eye care and eye surgery. Our first and foremost aim is to ensure the best possible functional vision and outcomes after eye surgery.
Cataracts are the most common surgically treatable eye disorder in older people. Modern ultrasound-assisted cataract microsurgery is a common and safe procedure. New technology has also vastly improved the outcomes and accuracy of surgery.
The cornea is the clear outermost layer of the eye. Dryness of the eye is the most common condition of the cornea and tear film. Our experienced surgeons are familiar with all the specialised techniques related to corneal conditions.
Age-related macular degeneration, macular puckering, macular hole or vitreous detachment, retinal tears and retinal detachment - Orton's ophthalmologists will help you.
The term uveitis refers to inflammation within the eye. The acute symptoms of iritis involve increased sensitivity to light and eye pain. Orton’s eye surgeons are highly skilled in the treatment and follow-up of uveitis, and have long experience in the treatment of uveitis-related cataracts and glaucoma.
