We Can Help Protect Your Vision

Glaucoma is a disease that requires early treatment to prevent further vision loss. At Center For Sight, our eye care physicians can identify and treat glaucoma with advanced technologies, including medication, surgery, and other treatments. 

Many types of glaucoma exist, but our team can offer you the care you need. Visit one of our locations for exceptional eye care and glaucoma management. Book an appointment with us today to understand how we can help protect your vision.

What Is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a disease that occurs when there is an increase in the fluid pressure within the eye. If left untreated, this pressure can cause irreversible damage to the optic nerve. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness today. 

In certain types of glaucoma, fluid does not drain properly, causing the pressure inside the eye to rise. Pressure build-up can damage the optic nerve and lead to vision loss. The most common type is open-angle glaucoma, but we treat patients with angle-closure glaucoma and normal-tension glaucoma as well.

Know If You’re At Risk

Approximately 3 million Americans have glaucoma, placing them at risk of severe vision loss. Unfortunately, many people do not realize they have glaucoma because it can progress with no visible symptoms in its early stages. 

However, your eye care physician can diagnose glaucoma early during a comprehensive eye exam. We recommend regular eye exams for everyone over age 40. 

While anyone can develop glaucoma, some people have a higher risk. These factors include: 

  • Age
  • Certain medical conditions
  • Family history
  • Previous eye injury
  • Extreme nearsightedness or farsightedness

Treating Glaucoma

Center For Sight is a leader in bringing the latest technologies to our patients. We can offer several treatments for glaucoma and recommend the most effective option to control eye pressure and prevent vision loss. 

Our available treatments include:

Medications

A variety of eye drops and oral medications exist to control glaucoma—your doctor can recommend different medications based on your needs.

SLT uses short energy pulses to reduce intraocular pressure for patients with open-angle glaucoma.

Minimally-invasive glaucoma surgery involves placing a stent to help bypass normal fluid drainage, lowering eye pressure.

Trabeculectomy is a type of glaucoma surgery used to create a new pathway for fluid to drain inside of the eye.

Tube implants are silicone tubes implanted into the eye to assist in fluid drainage to keep eye pressure down.

Catch Glaucoma Before It Worsens

Without treatment, glaucoma can lead to severe vision loss and blindness. With an early diagnosis, our team at Center For Sight can help preserve and protect your vision. Contact us for an eye exam, so we can detect glaucoma before it worsens.
