Glaucoma Center

GlaucomaGlaucoma, also known as “the thief of sight,” is a condition that results in the damage to the optic nerve and it usually develops gradually, often without any symptoms.  There are many types of Glaucoma, and the disease usually involves a situation where there is a buildup of aqueous fluid with in the eye.   Although there isn’t a cure for Glaucoma, there are several treatments available to lower the intraocular pressure and prevent further damage to the optic nerve.  At The Regional Eye Center, we offer thorough eye examinations that will help detect glaucoma early so that we can also provide the best treatments available to slow down any acceleration of the disease.  To learn more about Glaucoma, click on the links below.
