To detect glaucoma, our physicians will test your visual acuity, visual field as well as the pressure in your eye. We employ the specialized technology of :
OCT(Optical Coherence Tomography)
HRT (Heidelberg Retinal Tomography)
which can digitally perceive damage that may indicate the onset of glaucoma, allowing treatment to begin before vision is lost.
In most cases, once diagnosed, glaucoma can be controlled. Treatments to lower pressure in the eye include prescription eye drops and medications, laser therapy, and surgery.
