Glaucoma is an eye disease that is often first diagnosed by a comprehensive eye exam. When diagnosed and treated in the early stages, glaucoma should not go on to cause any permanent vision problems for the patient. This is but one reason why the patients should come in for annual eye exams. Glaucoma is treated with self-administered medicated eye drops in the early stages. These eye drops help control eye pressure. Most people who have glaucoma can wear contact lenses if they wish. However, after a certain type of glaucoma surgery it may be difficult to wear contacts. Additionally, contact lenses may increase the chance of infection after glaucoma surgery. It is extremely important to make sure that you lenses are cared for properly, and are not worn for longer than recommended if you have glaucoma or any other eye disease. With any eye disease, you do not want to complicate a situation by getting an eye infection. For an appointment to meet with our optometrist regarding contact lenses in San Souci, contact us today
