Glaucoma Laser Treatment

Glaucoma is a disease of the eye characterized by damage to the optic nerve fibers caused by an increase in eye pressure. it is a leading cause of blindness in the United States. Loss of sight usually can be prevented with close, frequent monitoring. In addition to measuring intra-ocular pressure, our office offers state-of-the-art testing, which can detect the first signs of glaucoma damage.

  • OCT

    (Ocular Coherence Tomography) Measures the thickness of the optic nerve tissue to detect the earliest signs of thinning due to glaucoma

  • Ocular Blood Flow

    Ocular Blood Flow measures the health of the blood flowing into the eye. It is felt that people with low ocular blood flow are at higher risk for glaucoma damage.

Visual Fields – A form of testing that maps out the field of vision. Glaucoma causes specifically shaped defects in the field of vision that can indicate loss of sight.

SLT – (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty) This a “cold” laser that makes very small openings in the trabecular meshwork of the eye to drain fluid. this helps lower eye pressure and in many cases can effectively treat glaucoma without medication.
