Mrs. Anuradha 43 years old female is a resident of a small village Barsi in Solapur. Anuradha is a housewife who keeps herself busy with cooking and other household activities. Her life was smooth till the day when she started complaining of redness, watering from her eyes and sticky discharge followed by a headache since 15 days. Day by day her eye problems increased disturbing her routine work. So she decided to have a consultation with an eye specialist. She went with her husband in Solapur where the doctor examined her eyes and diagnosed the case as Glaucoma and advised some eye drops for her eyes. Even after adding those eye drops, she could not find any relief, and the days were passing depressing her.
Anuradha’s brother who is a resident of Navi Mumbai visited native and he saw Anuradha in such a depressed mood, he listened to all her complaints and brought her in Mumbai to show an eye specialist in Mumbai. He searched on the internet for the best eye hospital in Mumbai, wherein he found Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) located at Sanpada, Navi Mumbai and booked an appointment for her sister.
Anuradha visited Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute with her husband and brother. They were happy with the environment and the cleanliness at AEHI, other than that they found that each of the staff is having a pleasant smile in their face and giving special attention to all the patients and their relatives. Anuradha went through her routine eye examination than she was referred to Dr. Rajesh Mishra, Glaucoma and Cataract Surgeon at AEHI. Dr. Rajesh Mishra checked her eyes and discussed all her eye problems with her. Dr. Rajesh Mishra carried few special tests for her yes which is was necessary for the correct diagnosis of the eye. Gonioscopy and OCT tests and IOP (Intraocular measurement) were done.
Gonioscopy: It is a test done to study the drainage angle between the cornea and the iris using a lens-based device. It helps to identify angle closure glaucoma.
OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography):-It is a non-invasive imaging test in which the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye is visualised by the light waves.
After a thorough eye examination, Dr. Rajesh Mishra diagnosed the condition as Primary Angle Closure Suspect (PACS).
Primary Angle Closure Suspect (PACS):-It is a condition in which the filtering trabecular meshwork is not visible and there is the absence of peripheral anterior synechiae (PAS) with normal intraocular pressure.
Dr. Rajesh Mishra asked her to stop all the previous eye drops which she was using as it was making creating dryness of the eyes and was increasing the intraocular pressure of the eyes. Then she was planned for Laser Peripheral Iridotomy.
On the day of operation Anuradha was taken in the operation theatre, an anesthetic drops were added in her eyes, then Dr. Rajesh Mishra started operating in her eyes, she was asked to focus in a beam light than a hole is created in the iris or coloured part of the eye to make an opening for the fluid (aqueous humour) to flow between the anterior chamber, the front part of the eye, the area behind the iris and the posterior chamber of the eye. Within 30 minutes Mrs Anuradha was out of the operation theatre. After the eye operation, Anuradha was asked to sit in the recovery room. Approximately after 40 minutes the intraocular pressure of the eyes was checked, which was found to be reduced. She was administered few anti-inflammatory eye drops to prevent infection and swelling in the eyes.
Anuradha came for her follow up after a week in which her eyes were checked and test were carried to check the intraocular pressure in the eyes. The pressure in her eyes was reduced, she could see much clearly. She was advised to follow up every 3 months.
