What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an eye disorder associated with a buildup of internal eye pressure (intraocular pressure or IOP), which can damage the optic nerve.
Symptoms of Glaucoma
Glaucoma typically affects your peripheral vision first. This is why it is such a sneaky disease; you can lose a great deal of your vision from glaucoma before you are aware anything is happening. If uncontrolled or left untreated, glaucoma can eventually lead to blindness.
There are other forms of the disease, where symptoms like blurry vision, halos around lights, intense eye pain, nausea, and vomiting occur suddenly.
Early diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma is the key to prevent vision loss. See your eye care doctor regularly for a complete eye examination. If you are experiencing any symptoms, contact us for a Glaucoma Evaluation.
Treatments for glaucoma range from medicated eye drops to conventional or laser surgery. Val Vista Vision has all of the latest technologies to provide glaucoma examinations. No other equipment offers a more complete integration of glaucoma diagnostics than the OCT (Optical Coherence Technology).
