Glaucoma is an eye disease that can be devastating to your vision. It can cause partial or complete vision loss. One particular thing about glaucoma is that it shows no obvious symptoms in the early stages. In fact, the general symptom most often recognized is a loss of peripheral vision. Unfortunately, this symptom is not obvious until the disease has seriously progressed. However, when patients have comprehensive eye exams it is very easy to be diagnosed with glaucoma when it is in the early stages. Glaucoma is initially recognized when our optometrist uses an instrument to determine your eye pressure, and the eye pressure is high. At this point additional tests are needed to make a definitive diagnosis. Once diagnosed, our optometrist will be able to provide you with Summerlin glaucoma treatment and monitoring.

Patients who have periodic eye exams who develop glaucoma will usually have it diagnosed at a very early stage. At this point glaucoma can be easily treated and managed with medicated eye drops that the patient will use to keep their eye pressure low. Patients will also need to come in to see our optometrist on a regularly scheduled basis so that any progression of the disease can be monitored. However, generally when glaucoma is diagnosed in the early stages it will never proceed to cause patients to experience any vision loss. There are basically two different types of glaucoma; open angle, and closed angle glaucoma. When glaucoma is diagnosed it is also diagnosed in terms of the exact disease which is present. If you would like to see our eye doctor for a comprehensive eye exam, or for Summerlin glaucoma treatment, contact us today.

Summerlin Glaucoma Treatment

Treating Eye disease in Summerlin

Are you concerned that you have not had a complete eye exam in several years? If so, it is easy to erase this concern – make an appointment today to visit our fine optometrist for a complete eye exam. Generally patients are able to leave our exams with a clean bill of eye health. However, if an eye disease or disorder is detected you will be lucky to have caught it sooner rather than later. Most eye diseases show no obvious symptoms in the early stages. However, eye diseases generally respond better to early treatment, and are easier to treat in the early stages. For example, patients who receive Summerlin glaucoma treatment at our office know that they are lucky to have been diagnosed while glaucoma was still in its early stages.

At our fine practice, Romy Park, OD, our optometrist is Dr. Romy Park. She has over ten years’ of experience and is dedicated to treating our patients and keeping their eyes in great health. Our office is state-of-the-art. For this reason, it is possible for Dr. Park to make quick and accurate diagnoses for various eye diseases and conditions. Glaucoma is an eye disease that needs to be treated to prevent vision loss. However our doctor cannot proceed with treating eye disease that the patient does not know he or she has. Glaucoma shows very few symptoms in the early stages so many patients do not even know they have the disease. The earlier glaucoma is diagnosed the earlier a patient can receive Summerlin Glaucoma treatment. Unfortunately vision lost to glaucoma cannot generally be recovered, so the earlier glaucoma is diagnosed the better.

In its early stages, glaucoma can generally be fully treated by Summerlin glaucoma treatment at our practice. This treatment will involve monitoring of the disease by Dr. Park, and the use of medicated eye drops. Patients will need to have their eye pressure monitored on a consistent basis to make sure the eye drops are working well. This may well halt any progression of the disease, and vision will not be lost at all. If the disease is diagnosed at a later stage, our patient may be referred to an ophthalmologist for laser surgery to halt the disease’s progression. In later stages, general surgery may be needed to stop glaucoma from progressing. These treatments are basically to stop progression of the disease – not to restore lost vision. Why not come in and see Dr. Park for a comprehensive eye exam soon, so that you will definitely know that your eyes are in great health.
