Glaucoma Management


Glaucoma ManagementIf you’re over 50 years of age, have a family history of glaucoma, are a diabetic, long-time steroid user, very nearsighted, or a Black American you’re at special risk of developing glaucoma. This is the leading cause of preventable blindness, but can be controlled if detected early.

Glaucoma TestingWe now have the latest technology for early detection, the OCT nerve fiber analyzer. The test is fast, painless, effective, and is quickly becoming the standard of care for glaucoma. It takes about five minutes, no dilation is needed, and many insurance companies now reimburse for the test under certain conditions. We cannot over-stress the urgency to schedule an appointment for your glaucoma test with the OCT today. 50% of people who presently have glaucoma are undiagnosed. 30% of those have eye pressures that are normal making it more difficult to detect this condition by conventional tests. This new technology can assist in the diagnosis 2-6 years earlier than any traditional diagnostic tests.
