Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the eye’s optic nerve and can result in vision loss and blindness. However, with early detection and treatment, you can often protect your eyes against serious vision loss. Neglected, this fell disease gradually devours your field of vision from the periphery and ultimately leads to complete blindness. That is why it is called the ‘silent killer of sight’ and is, at present, the second leading cause of blindness world-wide. Glaucoma service at DECF is managed by trained & competent doctors.
