Glaucoma Testing and Diagnosis
Glaucoma Diagnosis & Treatment
Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the United States. It is a condition that causes progressive damage to the optic nerve, which is the part of the eye that carries the images one sees to the brain. There are usually no symptoms at all in patients with glaucoma and it can progress for many years undetected causing permanent loss of vision and even blindness. Frequent eye exams are the only way to diagnose this disease and early treatment can be very effective. The ophthalmologists at Rockland Eye Physicians have at their disposal the latest, state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to detect glaucoma.
