Summerlin Glaucoma Treatment

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.

There are many benefits to scheduling regular eye exams. Eye exams are not just for people who already have eye diseases or patients who have any kind of vision impairment. Regular eye exams and checkups are necessary for all kinds of patients and for patients of all ages. While some risk factors may dictate how often you see your eye doctor, it is always a good idea to make sure that you are aware of what those factors are. Here in Summerlin glaucoma doctor Romy Park, OD can provide you with comprehensive eye care that can also help treat eye disease, vision loss, and prevent conditions such as glaucoma.

One of the many benefits of regular eye exams is the possibility for early detection. Many eye diseases, such as glaucoma, yield little to no noticeable symptoms by the suffering patient during their earlier stages. It is exactly this time that treatment is preferable. This is because as time passes and symptoms do occur, it is often because damage has also already occurred and often manifests itself in the form of some kind or degree of vision loss. Such is the case with glaucoma. This is why regular appointments are so important. Even though eye diseases like glaucoma have risk factors and are more prone to happen in patients that have a family medical history of the disease, that does not mean that patients who do not should not be concerned. Annual eye appointments here with Romy Park, OD at our eye care offices in Summerlin can help keep an eye out for such eye conditions. If any arise and are identified, Dr. Park will be able to monitor your symptoms and progression, providing you with the treatment you need along the way.

Don’t let your eye health go unchecked. If you have any risk factors for eye disease, have a family medical history of an eye disease, are experiencing any new symptoms or simply have not had your eyes checked via an exam in some time, then call us here in Summerlin glaucoma doctor and schedule an appointment with Romy Park, OD today.
