Glaucoma Management

Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, associated with an increased pressure in the eye, that typically progresses with no symptoms and can lead to vision loss.  We screen for glaucoma at the time of your comprehensive eye exam with eye pressure measurements and evaluation of the optic nerve.  If glaucoma is suspected, additional testing may be required such as visual field testing, optic nerve imaging and analysis, and corneal thickness.  Once diagnosed, our eye doctors may manage  glaucoma with medication or in other cases, refer patients to highly skilled glaucoma specialists.
