Glaucoma is a disease of the eye that may lead to blindness if not vigilantly treated. There are many different types of this disease, but they usually coincide with pressure in a certain part of the eye that damages the optic nerve. This nerve is necessary for the ability to see, and as it is compromised, a person may gradually lose their eyesight.
The symptoms of this disease are usually inconspicuous until significant damage has occurred, which is why regular eye care appointments are so important to do, since they can catch early signs of glaucoma. At our clinic, we can provide a comprehensive glaucoma exam that can diagnose the type and extent of the disease. We can then develop a treatment plan that works best for you.
