Glaucoma

We are dedicated to delivering advanced treatment to people suffering from glaucoma, which consists of a group of disorders that affect pressure within the eye and cause damage to the optic nerve. Common glaucoma disorders include:

  • Open-angle glaucoma
  • Angle-closure glaucoma
  • Neovascular glaucoma
  • Congenital glaucoma
  • Uveitic glaucoma

Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in the U.S. There is no current treatment for vision loss, but regular visits to your ophthalmologist can control the condition and prevent further vision loss.

Glaucoma specialists use a variety of diagnostic services and provide treatment options to prevent further damage based on the diagnosed glaucoma type. Options may include eye drops, laser treatment and surgery.
