GLAUCOMA

What is it?
An eye problem that develops when the optic nerve is damaged over a long enough period of time. People with glaucoma usually lose side vision, but also can lose straight-ahead vision if glaucoma is left untreated.

Who does it affect?
Usually people are more at risk to develop glaucoma as they mature. African-Americans, Asians and people with a family history of glaucoma are more at risk. Although glaucoma usually develops slowly over time and is painless, it can sometimes start suddenly with sharp pain and nausea.

How is it treated?
Glaucoma cannot be cured; however, in most cases, it is controllable. Our doctors use drops, lasers and occasionally surgery to control eye pressure and minimize or prevent damage from glaucoma.
