Glaucoma

Here at Adam’s Eyecare, we know how vital your vision is. We want you to see good for your whole lifetime. When someone has glaucoma they may not even know it- as vision doesn't go away until the disease is very advanced. We are able to find it in early stages, when treatment is helpful. Glaucoma doesn't need to mean blindness, it can be managed, and many people with glaucoma are still able to see well for a long time.

Glaucoma is defined as damage and loss of the eye's optic nerve axons, ganglion cells, and visual cortex. We check carefully for early Glaucoma with pressure monitoring, visual field screenings, and examination of the optic nerve. If we have concern about Glaucoma we will make a plan for treatment. Sometimes that includes finding a glaucoma specialist to ensure you are provided with the utmost, specialized care.
