There are several different options used to treat glaucoma. These options will not reverse any vision loss but they can help to slow or stop future damage. Medicated eye drops, a laser procedure, or a surgical procedure can be used to lower the pressure within the eye. Lowering a patient’s pressure can help to stop any further damage to their eyes. Determining which treatment plan is best will depend on several different factors including the type of glaucoma and how advanced the glaucoma is. Our physicians will evaluate and decide which treatment plan will work best for each patient individually. It is important to understand that glaucoma cannot be cured but it can be controlled.
Glaucoma Surgery and Laser Procedures
It’s important to speak with a glaucoma specialist on which treatment option best suits your individual need. Not every treatment is appropriate for every patient. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with glaucoma, we urge you to speak with one of our experienced glaucoma doctors about what the best course of action will be.
