Welcome to iGLAUCOMAblog, the Institut de la Màcula blog devoted entirely to glaucoma. My name is Dr. Marta Pazos and I am a specialist in the diagnosis and monitoring of glaucoma and its medical, laser and surgical treatment.
The blog is aimed at those who are interested in learning more about the condition. It provides rigorous and comprehensible information about the different types of glaucoma, the risk factors and the main recommendations by experts on the disease, together with other content.
In addition, iGLAUCOMAblog is intended to be a two-way platform where we will attempt to resolve the queries of our readers and patients. As with most diseases, early detection of glaucoma is vital.
Glaucoma is known as silent blindness or the thief of sight, as it shows no symptoms in its initial stages. In Spain, almost one million people suffer from the disease, with half of them unaware that they do so. Nevertheless, thanks to research, glaucoma can be beaten.
