Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. Unfortunately over half of the people who have this sight-stealing disease do not know that they have it. During the early stages of glaucoma the patient may not notice any obvious symptoms, but vision can still begin to be lost. And vision lost to glaucoma is almost impossible to regain. It is important that correct diagnosis of glaucoma is made early on so that treatment can begin. Proper treatment is generally able to stop glaucoma in its tracks. For this reason it is very important that patients are regularly screened for glaucoma. Our ophthalmologist in 10532 is able to successfully diagnose and treat patients who have glaucoma. At our practice we have leading-edge equipment that uses computerized tests to diagnose glaucoma. There are many different treatment options depending on the individualized patient’s case. Treatment options can range from topical eye drops that are self-administered, laser eye treatment and advanced surgical options. The laser treatment is precise and heals very quickly. Advanced surgical options are generally reserved for the more advanced cases of glaucoma.
