The Glaucoma Eye Clinic is designated to specifically test and treat patients who suffer from this vision threatening condition. There are several types of glaucoma such as Open Angle Glaucoma, Angle Closure Glaucoma, Normal Tension Glaucoma and secondary glaucoma (Pigment Dispersion Syndrome, Pseudoexfoliative Glaucoma, Traumatic Glaucoma, Neovascular Glaucoma).

Glaucoma is a quiet, symptomless eye condition that can steal the vision of many patients when it is not diagnosed and treated. It is often associated with high eye pressures and regular visits are common and important. There are several classes of medications that are used to treat the condition such as Prostaglandins, Beta Blockers, Alpha Agonists, and Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors.

Determining the best course of treatment and management is individual to each patient and depends on several personal factors. Call or click to schedule your glaucoma eye clinic evaluation today.
