Gonioscopy is one of the diagnostic tests that can help detect glaucoma. The test enables our optometrist to look at and assess the angle where the cornea and the iris converge. Gonioscopy can indicate if the drainage angle is accessible, has narrowed, or blocked. The test can assist in diagnosing the form of glaucoma, determining the underlying cause, and ascertaining damage to the area. A grading system is often referred to for interpreting the test findings based on the variations in angle width.
Typically, during the test the specialized lens (Gonioscope)is positioned delicately onto the surface of the eye, and a fine beam of light is directed into the eye. Before the procedure, the optometrist will use an anaesthetic eye drop to numb the eye.
