Glaucoma is a condition that damages the optic nerve and can lead to permanent vision loss, but early detection and treatment can prevent this outcome. The Eye Lab uses advanced technology, such as OCT imaging and visual field testing, to accurately diagnose and monitor glaucoma. Trust our experienced team to take care of one of your most precious assets – your vision.
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?
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.
