What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an umbrella term for a group of degenerative eye conditions that damage your optic nerve. Usually, glaucoma leads to abnormally high pressure in one or both of your eyes. Over time, you start losing vision and any vision you lose cannot be restored.
Can I tell if I have glaucoma?
You can also experience gradual vision loss due to normal-tension glaucoma, congenital glaucoma, traumatic glaucoma, or secondary glaucoma, to name a few.
How do your treat glaucoma?
Once the team better understands how glaucoma is affecting your vision, they put together a tailored glaucoma management treatment plan. This could include prescription eye drops that:
Sometimes oral medications known as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors can further help decrease eye pressure and preserve your vision. In severe cases, you could need surgery to treat glaucoma. The team at Limberg Eye Surgery specialize in cutting-edge laser therapy, trabeculectomy, electrocautery, and drainage tube procedures to help your eyes stay as healthy as possible.
