Comprehensive Glaucoma Vision Care

Diagnostic Testing Services. We offer state-of-the-art diagnostic testing services including scanning laser analysis of the optic nerve and nerve fiber layer, computerized field mapping, and central corneal thickness measurement.

Medication Management. We work to adjust and manage glaucoma medications for our patients to give safe and effective control. Our goal is to safeguard your eyesight with comfortable and simple steps whenever possible.

Glaucoma Laser Treatment. This treatment can augment the benefit from eye drops and may reduce the need for eye drops. We provide laser treatment for glaucoma management when it is appropriate. This can be done in the office.

Glaucoma Surgery. We provide glaucoma surgery in a convenient outpatient setting when beneficial for glaucoma care. If this is recommended, we will go over your specific needs and guide you through the surgical procedure and the post-operative care. The surgery that is most commonly recommended is trabeculectomy. In some cases, tube-shunt surgery may be more appropriate.
