Getting Clear on Glaucoma Treatments
If you’ve been diagnosed with glaucoma and are in need of ways to successfully treat and manage your condition, Dr. Tichy and his team are here to help you develop an effective treatment plan. Eye care technology has advanced exponentially, making it easier than ever to manage the eye disorder. We’re here to not only help you with your glaucoma but educate you on the condition as well in order that you fully understand what’s going on with your eyes and what you can do to protect your vision.
Your Treatment Options
There are several ways to respond to glaucoma. The option that works best for you will depend on the overall severity of the eye disease. Currently, treatment plans include:
- Bladed surgery
- Laser surgery
- Combination therapy
We like to make those with glaucoma aware that the first route we’ll try is eye drops, which are intended to reduce your intraocular pressure. If that doesn’t prove effective, we’ll move on to something a bit more advanced.
Before your Milford CT eye doctor can treat your glaucoma, it first has to be determined you actually have it and not another eye disorder. Glaucoma is known as one of the more subtle eye diseases, and as such it’s best to have your eyes regularly examined in order that the disease can be detected and treated before it has a chance to spread.
Glaucoma is detected through a routine eye exam, specifically with the use of a tonometer, which takes a measure of your eye’s intraocular pressure. Another way to measure your pressure is by administering a puff of air directly onto the surface of your eyes.
