Glaucoma

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a disease caused by an increase in pressure within the eye, which, if left untreated, can result in blindness. Chronic glaucoma in its early stages causes no symptoms. It is diagnosed by regular eye examinations which include a test to measure intraocular pressure. Usually chronic glaucoma can be treated with drugs in the form of eye drops. Narrow angle glaucoma causes pain in the eye, headaches, occasional visual symptioms like halos around lights and sometimes nausea and vomiting. Laser surgery is an effective treatment for this type of glaucoma.

Treatments we offer:

  • Diagnostic testing to monitor advancement of disease including Zeiss Octopus Visual Fields and Nerve Fiber Layer Analysis
  • Medical Treatment with eye drops
  • Laser surgeries including select laser trabeculoplasty, laser iridotomy and endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation at the surgery center
