Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases which slowly damage the optic nerve of the eye, leading to permanent vision loss. The damage is often (but not always) due to a rise in eye pressure. Glaucoma can be treated with eye drops, laser and surgery, but previous vision loss cannot be reversed. There are no early warning signs, so regular eye exams are the best plan for early detection.
Everyone should be checked for glaucoma regularly every 2 years when under 40 years and yearly once you are over 40 years old.
Our Glaucoma Package includes a comprehensive eye exam, a dilated pupil test, visual field test and an OCT scan of your macula and optic nerves. This enables earlier detection of glaucoma and preservation of vision.
