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.

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.

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.
