What is the Cost of Glaucoma Surgery in Kochi?
The average cost of a glaucoma surgery in Kochi ranges from Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 40,000. It is to be noted however, that the final cost may vary depending on a multitude of factors such as severity of your glaucoma, diagnostic tests before the surgery and method of surgery.
Glaucoma is a medical condition in which fluids in your eyes, often referred to as intraocular fluids, don't drain like they should and start to build up. This buildup increases pressure in the eye and starts to damage the optic-nerve which is responsible for sending images to the brain. As pressure continues to increase, glaucoma worsens over time and if left untreated, can lead to permanent blindness.
