Glaucoma Evaluation & Treatment
Glaucoma refers to a family of eye diseases where the fluid pressure
increases inside the eye, causing irreversible nerve fiber damage of
the retina. It is the leading cause of preventable blindness in the U.S.
There is no pain, no noticeable symptoms, and no cure. The good
news is that it can be controlled if detected early.
We are the only office in Nevada County, and one of only a few in
Northern California, to have the state-of-the-art Zeiss Cirrus
High-Definition OCT. This instrument scans and measures the
thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layers, providing the earliest
possible detection of glaucoma. The diagnosis and evaluation of
glaucoma is also aided by the use of our new high- resolution
digital retinal photographs and measurement of the corneal thickness
using ultrasound (Pachymetry).
Don’t delay in calling our office if you have any concerns regarding
your eyes and glaucoma.
