Glaucoma

A potentially sight threatening disease

I am thrilled that we have an eye center of this caliber in Visalia. Otherwise, I would have to make the trip to Stanford or UCSF. We are long-time patients here.

Glaucoma is a potentially sight threatening disease that does not have symptoms in the early stages. Annual eye examinations that include screening for glaucoma are important and part of the services Eye Surgical & Medical Associates offer to their patients. If glaucoma is detected the doctors can prescribe different treatment options. Treatment options are:

  • Medications that work by increasing the flow of fluid out of the eye, helping to lower the intraocular pressure (IOP).
  • In-office laser treatment that can effectively reduce the intraocular pressure (IOP) for most patients. For laser treatment our doctors use Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT). The SLT is a safe and simple in-office treatment.
  • Surgery may become a treatment option if non-surgical methods fail to lower intraocular pressure (IOP). Our doctors can provide surgical consultation & services.
