Glaucoma Refinement

What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a condition where fluid builds up in the eye causing an increase in pressure, this leads to damage of the optic nerve.

 

If Glaucoma is left untreated it will gradually cause vision to worsen, possibly resulting in sight loss.

How can we help?

We are part of Wirral’s Glaucoma Referral Refinement Scheme and by using specialised equipment we can determine if there are any early signs of Glaucoma and refer accordingly to an Ophthalmologist.

 

You may not be aware but if one of your parents, children or siblings has glaucoma and you are aged over 40 the NHS will pay for your eye examination annually even if you do not glaucoma yourself.
