Glaucoma Diagnosis and Management Services

Glaucoma, often known as the 'silent thief of sight,' is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness worldwide. However, with early detection and ongoing management, glaucoma progression can be halted and your vision preserved. At Optiks Optometry, we provide thorough glaucoma care, from advanced diagnostic methods to personalized treatment strategies.

The Optiks Optometry Advantage:

Our Approach to Glaucoma Diagnosis

Diagnosing glaucoma is not always straightforward. It involves more than just measuring eye pressure; we also analyze the optic nerve’s appearance and check for any vision loss. At Optiks Optometry, we utilize cutting-edge technology for glaucoma diagnosis, incorporating:

  • Tonometry:

    Measuring intraocular pressure.

  • Ophthalmoscopy:

    Evaluating the optic nerve appearance.

  • Visual Field Test (Perimetry):

    Checking for areas of vision loss.

  • Gonioscopy:

    Examining the eye's drainage angle.

  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT):

    an in-depth scan to monitor for optic nerve thinning

Effective Management of Glaucoma

While there's no cure for glaucoma, we can manage the disease effectively to prevent further vision loss. Depending on the glaucoma type and progression, a range of treatment options are available:

  • Medicated Eye Drops:

    These are usually the first line of treatment to reduce eye pressure by enhancing fluid drainage or decreasing liquid production.

  • Laser Procedures:

    These can improve fluid drainage, reducing eye pressure to prevent optic nerve damage.

  • Microsurgery (Trabeculectomy):

    This procedure creates a new drainage channel to decrease eye pressure.

Remember that the effectiveness of glaucoma treatment is highly dependent on patient adherence to the prescribed treatment plan.
