Glaucoma Testing & Management

Catch Glaucoma Before It Causes Vision Loss

Preventive Eye Care is Your Best Protection From Glaucoma

Many serious eye diseases, including glaucoma, progress through their infancy without displaying noticeable symptoms- no pain, no blurry vision, and no indicator that would suggest something is wrong. In this scenario it isn’t until obvious vision loss occurs – usually in the form of tunnel vision – before glaucoma becomes noticeable.

Unfortunately, by the time glaucoma has caused vision loss, the lost vision is irrecoverable. It’s gone for good.

Annual Eye Exams Are Your Best Bet in Detecting Glaucoma Early

Eye Exams Are Painless & Non-Invasive

We can’t speak to the benefits of preventative eye care enough. In the cases of glaucoma, and other serious eye diseases like it, the best chance of long-term success is to catch a developing disease early.

Our comprehensive eye exams utilize the latest technology available, including optical coherence tomography imaging (OCT imaging), to ensure that we detect any change to your vision- no matter how small it may be.

More Information About Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a vision-threatening disease. However, in most cases in can be successfully managed. Compliance with our outlined treatment plan is vital to ensure maximum effectiveness and vision preservation.

Glaucoma causes damage to the optic nerve. The optic nerve is the highway that passes information to/from the brain. When it is damaged, information cannot pass through it and vision suffers as a result.
