Glaucoma is a medical condition characterized by increased pressure in the eyeball. In its early stages, glaucoma usually shows no symptoms at all. This can sometimes prove dangerous, as glaucoma treatments are often most effective when applied sooner rather than later––and, sadly, the disease can lead to permanent sight loss if left untreated. Still, early detection can be your best weapon in the fight against vision loss. That’s why it’s critical to get tested during your annual visit to the eye doctor.
Our intensive glaucoma evaluations consist of several key procedures, including:
- Ophthalmoscopy: A dilated exam for the optic nerve
- Vision Perimetry: A test for field of vision
- Tonometry: A method of examining pressure in the inner eye
- And more.
