Glaucoma is caused by a buildup of pressure within the eye, which can damage the optic nerve. Most types of glaucoma don’t cause noticeable symptoms until vision loss occurs. If you do experience the following, please see your eye doctor immediately:
- blurred vision
- halos around lights
- eye pain
We provide several treatment options for glaucoma, depending on its severity. These include the following:
- laser treatment
- medication (usually in the form of eye drops)
The goal of these treatments is to stabilize the pressure in your eye, so that damage to the optic nerve can be stopped or prevented altogether.
Be sure to see your eye doctor for regular checkups, so that if glaucoma is detected, it can be treated as soon as possible. If you suspect you may be suffering from glaucoma, contact us today to set up an examination. Let us help put you on the road to better eye health.
