Glaucoma Treatment in Denton, TX
It’s Important to Get Screened Annually for This Common Eye Disease
Everyone should have annual eye exams without any exceptions, especially if they have a family history of glaucoma, suffer from chronic high blood pressure, or struggle with high blood sugar. These all put you at higher risk of developing glaucoma, an eye disease in which there is high pressure in the eye from the irregular fluid flow that can lead to serious eye health problems and even blindness, especially in people over the age of 60. There are no symptoms of glaucoma in its early stages, which is why it’s crucial to have regular annual eye exams to check for it.
Treatments for Glaucoma
Although this condition cannot be cured, our board-certified ophthalmologists at Advanced Eye Care Center are able to effectively treat it with prescription medications to control pressure and fluid drainage. Prescription eye drops may also be necessary. If we cannot get pressure down with medications or laser treatment, we may recommend surgery to slow the progression of the disease. We offer surgical remedies such as selective laser trabeculectomy to halt the damage that can affect the optic nerve and prevent blindness while encouraging fluid drainage.
At Advanced Eye Care Center, We Are Here to Help You
Managing glaucoma is a lifelong process, as this condition has no cure. If you don’t treat it, though, and don’t take your medication as prescribed or keep current with your follow-up appointments, any vision loss you sustain will be permanent. Because we value your eye health, we encourage you to take this condition seriously. Our board-certified, compassionate ophthalmologists are eager to help you maintain your eye health.
