Glaucoma is a complex eye disease which may occur at all ages and in many forms. It is considered the leading cause of blindness worldwide, and is often referred to as the "sneak thief of sight" as it typically causes no symptoms until late stages of the disease. Because glaucoma cannot be "cured", early detection and treatment are imperative to preserve sight.
Our optometric physicians are experienced with managing glaucoma and our clinic is equipped with the latest technology to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of this disease, including the industry-leading Spectralis OCT with Glaucoma Module and gold-standard Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer.
One of the most common reasons for glaucoma progression is poor compliance with medications, which often occurs when patients do not understand their disease or physicians take little time to counsel and explain treatment options. Our doctors are committed to taking the time to ensure that our patients and their loved ones understand and appreciate the nuances of this disease and have access to all treatment options available, whether through our own clinic or in co-management with trusted glaucoma surgeons.
