Glaucoma is a very serious eye disease which often shows no symptoms in the early stages, but can go on to cause blindness if left untreated. If you want to have a complete exam for third diagnosis of glaucoma, or need glaucoma treatment in Great Neck NY, you can do no better than to come to see our ophthalmologist at New York Cornea Consultants.
When you come to our eye care practice, you will be seen by our expert and highly-trained ophthalmologist, Dr. Michael Ehrenhaus. Our eye doctor provides the very best glaucoma treatment in Great Neck NY whether it is diagnosing glaucoma, providing glaucoma management, or providing glaucoma surgery. Glaucoma is actually a collective term that is used for a group of different eye diseases all of which cause permanent damage to the optic nerve. If not treated, the glaucoma can progress and cause permanent and irreversible vision loss. At our practice, we provide all diagnostic and treatment options for patients who need glaucoma care. Some types of glaucoma show no symptoms in the early stages. Other types of glaucoma have no warning signs, but can have severe and sudden onset. At our vision practice, we use the most advanced computerized tests to allow for proper diagnosis of glaucoma. If our patient needs surgery to treat the glaucoma and keep it from progressing, we have laser treatments that can be provided for precise eye treatment which also heals quickly. We provide both laser peripheral iridotomy and selective laser trabeculoplasty. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness, so it is not an eye disease which should be ignored. It is important to have annual eye exams to make sure your eyes are remaining healthy, and are not developing glaucoma or other vision-threatening diseases.
