Blood flow in high-tension and normal-tension glaucoma

Glaucoma therapy

In most cases, we understand glaucoma therapy as prophylaxis to prevent glaucoma damage. Therefore, we try to eliminate or mitigate the risk factors that contribute to glaucoma damage. This, in turn, can vary greatly from patient to patient. A meaningful therapy always relies on a good diagnosis. Specifically, in each patient we need to understand which factors were involved in causing the existing damage or may be responsible for the future progression of the damage. In most cases, it is an interplay of several factors. Then, if possible, we first treat the factors that are particularly pronounced in the respective patient. Therefore, on this website we cannot and do not want to propose a general treatment scheme for glaucoma. Rather, it is our intention that each patient receives a therapy that is tailored to his or her specific needs.
