What is intraocular pressure?

One of the factors of this disease is intraocular pressure increasing. intraocular pressure is the pressure of aqueous humor. It might change the level depends on the season or time of day; the normal range is medically defined among 10-21mmHg.

What is Aqueous humor?

The water was produced by the ciliary body, normally drains into the front of the eye (anterior chamber) through tissue (trabecular meshwork) at the angle where the iris and cornea meet. However, when the water doesn’t flow properly, intraocular pressure will increase. How it stunts the water flowing in the eyes, this disease are categorized several types.

Greeting

Nowadays Japan has the issues of a super-aging society, and it is necessary to start caring the eyes from a young age in order to keep the eyes healthy.
I believe it is very important to examine and diagnose by understanding what patients are worried about, and giving individualized treatment plans.
My belief is to help and support all patients keeping their eyes well-conditioned throughout the life. If there's anything you are worried about, even the small things, please do not hesitate to ask me. Thank you.
