Early diagnosing is key to preserving vision for Glaucoma patients.

Glaucoma is a disease of the eye where the optic nerve (the electrical cord connecting your eye to your brain) experiences progressive degeneration which can lead to blindness if untreated.

 

What Are The Symptoms?

Glaucoma progresses very slowly in most cases and has no symptoms during its early stages. As the disease worsens, loss of side vision, then eventually all vision occurs. Since there is no pain or discomfort, until vision loss is noticeable, an individual may not know that they have glaucoma.

 

How Can We Help?

First, and most importantly, we have the knowledge, experience and state of the art technology to diagnose glaucoma at its earliest stage. The key to managing glaucoma to prevent vision loss is early diagnosis and treatment. Prescribing cutting-edge medicines and collaborating with our local surgical colleagues, when needed, we are able to treat glaucoma and prevent or halt vision loss from occurring. As a leader in glaucoma management, we have participated in numerous FDA clinical trials testing new glaucoma drugs that are part of today’s treatment options.
