Glaucoma

Glaucoma TreatmentGlaucoma is a slowly progressing disease that can cause complete vision loss in both eyes if left untreated. This disease is the second-leading cause of blindness, affecting more than 3 million Americans each year. As a rule, increased eye pressure over a long period of time causes optic nerve damage. Glaucoma cannot be cured and optic nerve damage is permanent, but, if detected early, glaucoma can be monitored and controlled.

At Bloomberg Eye Center, we offer the latest in diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma. OCT Nerve Fiber Analyzer is one of the latest diagnostic tools to detect and monitor the progression of glaucoma. Treatments available include eye drops, laser treatments, and surgery, all intended to lower the eye pressure. Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) is the latest laser treatment available at our eye center to treat glaucoma.
