You have probably heard the term before, but what exactly is glaucoma? Well, it is a group of diseases that damage the optic nerve of your eye. This damage can result in vision loss and blindness. There is good news, though. With early detection and proper glaucoma treatments in St. Johns, FL, from our optometrist, we are able to protect your eyes against serious vision loss due to this illness.

St. Johns Eye Associates provides a glaucoma treatment service that is designed to provide you with the best possible results when you have been diagnosed with glaucoma. This is a chronic illness that does not have a cure and any vision loss caused by this illness cannot be restored. That means you cannot wait to come and speak to our glaucoma treatment doctor when you believe you have this nasty disease.

Symptoms of Glaucoma

When glaucoma first begins to affect a patient, they may not be able to notice right away. That is because, in the beginning, glaucoma doesn't cause any pain or vision loss. Even if it has developed in both eyes. Without treatment, however, people with glaucoma begin to slowly lose their peripheral vision. This vision loss only gets worse over time as the patients begin to feel like they are looking through a tunnel. Eventually, the central vision also decreases until no vision remains.

So how do you know you have glaucoma in the early stages? The best solution is to visit our optometrist for regular checkups. We perform a comprehensive dilated eye exam that includes visual acuity testing, visual field testing, tonometry measurements, and pachymetry measurements. These tests allow us to get an idea of the health of your eyes and let us know if you require glaucoma treatments to prevent you from losing your vision.

An early diagnosis allows us to use different glaucoma treatments, including medicine, laser trabeculoplasty, conventional surgery, or a combination of these treatments to help you save your remaining vision. While there is no cure for glaucoma or for the vision loss it can cause, the glaucoma treatments available from our office can go a long way towards helping you keep your eyesight and health. Just like any other chronic diseases, proper maintenance and care is the key to living a long, happy, and fulfilling life even as you combat the effects caused by your illness.
