Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. In the United States, approximately 1.9% of the population 40 years old and above have Glaucoma.

It is a group of eye conditions that results in progressive damage to the optic nerve and, thus, the vision. While anyone can develop Glaucoma, some risk factors include elevated eye pressure, family history, age, and race.


We Help To Evaluate Your Eye Sight!


The damage that occurs is most often related to an abnormally high pressure in the eye. With many types of Glaucoma, including the most common type, you may have no warning signs.

The damage occurs gradually, and you may not notice until the vision loss is severe. Because vision loss due to Glaucoma cannot be recovered, it is important to get evaluated regularly by your ophthalmologist.

We will check your pressure and evaluate the optic nerve head and visual field using the most up-to-date technology.

If we are concerned about potential Glaucoma, we may simply observe your eyes closely over time and do regular testing.

If we determine you have Glaucoma, we will develop a personalized treatment plan for your eyes to halt or limit the progression of the disease.

This often starts with drops and/or laser treatment, but in more severe cases can require surgery. Once diagnosed with Glaucoma, you will generally need treatment for the rest of your life to prevent visual loss long term.
