Glaucoma refers to a buildup of eye pressure that damages the optic nerve. Without early detection or the proper treatment, this progressive condition can lead to vision loss or even blindness. Our team at the Cataract & Refractive Institute of Florida can manage your glaucoma. Board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. James E. Croley III offers a range of cutting-edge treatments, such as MIGS (minimally invasive glaucoma surgery) and laser procedures, based on the severity of your condition. Patients in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, and Lehigh Acres should schedule an eye assessment to learn how we protect their eye health.
