Treatment of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease where the optic nerve (a cord that transmits visual information from the eye to the brain) degenerates. Glaucoma is often times associated with a high internal eye pressure (intraocular pressure). When left untreated, glaucoma can lead to eventual permanent vision loss, which in most cases, is painless. Vision loss usually begins at the edges of your vision (peripheral vision). Continual vision loss can lead to complete blindness.

We are fully certified to treat this sight-threatening disease. The treatment of glaucoma, varying from eye drops to surgery, depends on the type of glaucoma you are diagnosed with and how advanced the disease is. During your exam, we will perform various procedures to diagnose the type of glaucoma you have, and determine the best treatment plan for you.
