Glaucoma Screening Package




Understanding the 4 facts of Glaucoma, a danger without warning 

  • There were approximately 76 million glaucoma sufferers worldwide in 2020.
  • Glaucoma tends to be symptomless, but in the last stage patients will experience gradual blurred vision, and there is a risk of complete blindness if left untreated.
  • Glaucoma can be treated with eye drops, laser treatment or surgery to lower eye pressure.
  • High risk factors for glaucoma:
    • Over age 40
    • High eye pressure
    • Family history of the condition
    • Regularly taking steroid medication
    • Underlying health conditions such as diabetes
    • Previous eye injury
    • Extreme myopia or hyperopia

Preparing for your eye test

  • Patients should get sufficient sleep (6 – 8 hours) the night before testing
  • Patients should not drive themselves to the appointment
  • Patients should bring sunglasses for use after the test

The Eye Clinic at Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital is offering a glaucoma screening package as part of our World Glaucoma Week campaign, available through December 31, 2023.
