Glaucoma, The Silent Disease…

Date posted: March 26, 2012   |  

Do you have a family history of glaucoma? If the answer is yes, don’t delay on getting your eyes checked. Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness and visual impairment in the U.S. A silent disease, glaucoma can go undetected until the changes have taken affect and it is too late.

Glaucoma is characterized by elevations of pressure from internal fluid build up in the eye that exerts pressure on the optic nerve. For more detailed information on the disease, click on the Glaucoma Evaluation and Treatment link on our website.

Luckily, glaucoma is now treatable through a series of drops, laser treatments, and in some cases, surgery. Here at Monterey Bay Eye Center, we have the gold standard of diagnostic equipment to evaluate, follow, and treat any stage of glaucoma.
