India: Country first Glaucoma Surgery successful, 3 patients got new vision

October 21, 2021 0 By Joe Hodgson

The country’s first glaucoma surgery has been performed, and three patients have received new vision. Glaucoma is an injury to the optic nerve due to increased pressure in the eye. The disease is highly hereditary and can lead to blindness if not treated in time. Since some of the symptoms of this disease are not felt at the beginning, the patient feels the effect only after more injury and in that situation it becomes difficult to control it and many have to face blindness.

About 3 in 100 people worldwide suffer from this disease. But the Sri Ramakrishna Netralaya in Thane has given new vision to three patients. Sri Ramakrishna Netralaya is one of the best NABH accredited hospitals in India and has been operating in Thane, Mulund, Seawood and Navi Mumbai for the last 15 years to diagnose, diagnose and operate on glaucoma patients.

Thousands of patients are regularly availing this service. The institute, which is a pioneer in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma, has been using state-of-the-art technology for the last several years. Open angle glaucoma is the most common type of glaucoma in the world. The trabecular meshwork in the front part of the eye drains water out of the eye.

The properties of this mesh change due to genetic factors, which prevents proper drainage of aqueous humor. This increases the water pressure in the eye and damages the optic nerve. Sri Ramakrishna Netralaya is the first in India to introduce istent and istent inject, a micro-incision glaucoma surgery device from an American company called Glaukos.

The device, which is implanted in the human body, is the world’s smallest device and is FDA, USA approved. This technology is recognized all over the world. The istent is inserted into the trabecular meshwork, which drains the water from the eye, thus opening the trapped path of the eye and thus controlling the pressure in the eye. Since this device is microscopic, the surgery is performed through a microscopic incision.

No harm to the eye
The device, made of surgical grade titanium, does no harm to the eye. The fully NABH accredited Sri Ramakrishna Netralaya has been providing state-of-the-art technology to patients in Thane and Mumbai for the last several years. Netralaya is committed to making world class facilities available to the masses at affordable prices.
