Glaucoma Awareness Week (March 11th-17th)

300,000 people in the UK are unaware that they are slowly losing their sight.

The treatment of glaucoma has developed considerably over recent years and new, more potent drugs with fewer side effects than earlier medications are now available.

Surgical techniques have also improved and it is estimated that the vast majority of people diagnosed early with glaucoma will retain useful sight for life.

Edgbaston Eye Clinic work in close collaboration with one of the leading Glaucoma Surgeons in Mr Imran Masood.

Mr Masood is a pioneering surgeon and he was one of the first surgeons to use the revolutionary IStent.

Mr Masood continues to do high level research in Glaucoma and is very much known worldwide for his research and surgical skills.
