Description of service

Glaucoma is a group of diseases characterised by optic nerve disease resulting in peripheral visual field loss.

Patients with this common and potentially blinding condition require monitoring for life; this is carrried out by the Glaucoma Service at the Bristol Eye Hospital. The service also monitors those who have no detectable optic nerve damage or field loss, but are at risk because of ocular hypertension.

Further information for patients

Outpatient clinics are held on the Ground Floor of the Eye Hospital.
