What You Need To Know About Glaucoma
According to recent studies, more than 3 million Americans have glaucoma but only half of those are aware that they have it. When a person has glaucoma, it means their optic nerve is damaged—a problem often caused by an increase in internal eye pressure. Symptoms can include eye pain, nausea, blurry vision, red eye, and frequent headaches. Glaucoma is the second-leading cause of blindness in the world so that’s why it’s crucial to detect this condition early on to prevent more extensive effects.
You can easily determine if you have glaucoma by undergoing a comprehensive eye exam. If it was diagnosed early, we can treat it through:
- Medicated eye drops
- Traditional surgery
- Laser surgery
When one of our glaucoma specialists in Northern VA have confirmed that you’re suffering from glaucoma, we will create a treatment plan based on your specific needs. We understand that every patient is unique, which is why we make it a point to perform a thorough analysis of the problem every time. This allows us to come up with the best ways to resolve it. If in case your glaucoma has advanced, our specialists will take the necessary steps to manage the condition with the right clinical approach.
With us, you can rest easy knowing that our doctors will work closely with you to determine which stage your glaucoma is at, as well as discuss the ideal treatment options for your needs.
