Have you been diagnosed with glaucoma and need to find an expert optometrist who can help you monitor your vision situation? Do you have diabetes and want to see an eye doctor who can monitor your eyes for diabetic retinopathy? These are just two of the eye care services that are performed by our optometrist to help patients who are suffering with eye diseases and need to have their eye diseases treated or managed to avoid vision loss. At our eye care practice, Romy Park, OD, our expert and highly trained optometrist is Dr. Romy Park. She is able to provide Summerlin glaucoma treatment as well as treatment of other eye problems.
Dr. Park is a highly trained optometrist who is certified to treat and manage glaucoma. Glaucoma is a disease that generally does not present any symptoms in the early stages. It is often diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam before serious vision changes have occurred. However, when glaucoma does cause vision problems, they generally cannot be reversed. This is just one reason why you will want to make sure that you have annual eye exams to make sure that glaucoma or any other serious eye diseases can be caught in the early stages. The good news is that when glaucoma is caught early it can be easily managed with Summerlin glaucoma treatment.
When our optometrist is treating a patient who has glaucoma, she will want to periodically monitor the patient to make sure that the glaucoma is not progressing. She will also prescribe eye drops which will keep the pressure in the eyes at a safe low measurement. These eye drops are self-administered by the patient and should be very effective in keeping the glaucoma at bay. When our eye doctor sees our patient, as part of our Summerlin glaucoma treatment, she will run several tests to make sure that the glaucoma is not advancing, and that the eye pressure is being kept at a safe level. Our optometrist is also very effective in treating dry eye, including stubborn dry eye. Although dry eye in itself is not a dangerous condition, if left untreated it can go on to cause permanent damage to the cornea. For this reason, you will want to make sure that you do not let the condition continue without appropriate eye treatment at our practice.
