Glaucoma Diagnosis

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness and yet, when found, is usually very treatable. People often go blind from glaucoma because they don’t know they have the disease. Most cases of glaucoma have no symptoms. Unlike a sore tooth, there is nothing to tell you something is wrong. When vision is lost from glaucoma, the loss is permanent, so the goal is to diagnose and treat it early – before damage goes too far. Glaucoma is not curable, but it is treatable. Your doctor will review all your diagnostic testing and if you are found to have glaucoma, he or she will go over all your options and recommend a course of treatment that will give you the best chance to live your life without loss of vision from glaucoma.
