Glaucoma is actually a group of eye diseases that all can result in optic nerve damage. This optic nerve damage is generally, but not always caused by abnormally high pressure inside your eye. During a comprehensive eye exam our eye doctor can accurately determine whether or not you are suffering with glaucoma in Berea. If tests show that you have abnormally high intraocular pressure in your eyes, additional tests will be performed so that an accurate diagnosis can be made. Glaucoma is a disease which can cause blindness, however, it can be easily treated when caught in the early stages. This is just one reason why you want to make sure to come to our vision practice for comprehensive eye exams on a yearly basis. Glaucoma shows no symptoms in the early stages, but it can be easily diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam. If our optometrist finds that you do have glaucoma, medicated eye drops can generally be prescribed which will keep the disease from advancing. If our optometrist finds that you have glaucoma which has moved on to a more advanced state, he or she will most likely refer you to an ophthalmologist who specializes in the disease, and can provide you with advanced treatment. Since there are really no obvious early symptoms of glaucoma, many people actually have the disease and do not even know that their vision is at risk. To avoid vision problems from glaucoma in Berea, we hope you will come to see us for an annual eye exam.
