Did you know that glaucoma is one of the leading causes of vision loss in adults today? Glaucoma is an umbrella term that actually refers to a number of related conditions, often with an increased pressure on the optic nerve in common. Unfortunately, the most common forms of glaucoma typically do not present any noticeable symptoms as the conditions are first developing. That is why it is so important to have your eyes examined regularly by our Stirling ophthalmologist, especially as you grow more mature in age. Often, these regular eye exams are what allow our Stirling ophthalmologist to diagnose glaucoma earlier on than we otherwise might.
In standard, comprehensive eye exams, our Stirling ophthalmologist will do a reading of your intraocular pressure. If it seems to be especially high, it may alert suspicions of glaucoma development. At Somerset Hills Eye Care Center, we always use the latest, state-of-the-art technology and high-tech equipment in order to provide the highest quality services for our patients. An example of this is our computerized glaucoma diagnosis. Our Stirling ophthalmologist uses the latest and most advanced computerized tests in order to come up with a secure diagnosis of glaucoma. Once glaucoma is diagnosed, we can then go over the most viable and effective treatment options for you in order to preserve and protect your vision. For some cases of glaucoma, we recommend quick and easy laser surgery as a means of treating in the most precise manner possible, and encouraging the fastest healing process.
