Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve and can result in partial or complete blindness if left untreated. It is often associated with elevated pressure inside the eye (known as ‘intraocular pressure’), but can also occur with normal or low intraocular pressure. Glaucoma usually progresses gradually and without symptoms, which makes regular eye exams essential for early detection and treatment. There are several types of glaucoma, including open-angle, angle-closure, and normal-tension, and treatment options include eye drops, medication, and surgery. While there is no cure for glaucoma, early intervention can help prevent or slow down the progression of the disease.

Why Should You Test For Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a serious eye condition that can lead to blindness if left untreated. It often has no symptoms until significant vision loss has occurred. Early detection and treatment can ultimately help to preserve vision and prevent the disease from progressing. If you are over the age of 40 or have a family history of glaucoma, it is especially important to schedule regular glaucoma tests to check for signs of the disease.

Can Glaucoma Be Cured?

There is no known cure for glaucoma. However, with early detection and treatment, the progression of the disease can be slowed down or halted. Treatment options include medications, laser therapy, and surgery, depending on the type and severity of the disease.

How do We Test For Glaucoma?

Glaucoma testing involves a comprehensive eye exam, which may include several different diagnostic procedures. These can include measurements of intraocular pressure, dilated eye exams to check the optic nerve for damage, and visual field tests to assess peripheral vision. Imaging may be used to provide a more detailed assessment of the optic nerve and retinal nerve fiber layer. Based on the results of these tests, an optometrist or ophthalmologist will determine if glaucoma is present.
