Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in this country and the term really represents a group of eye conditions that result in damage to the optic nerve, which causes loss of vision. Often glaucoma is caused by abnormally high pressure inside the eye. Primary open-angle glaucoma is the most common type of the disease and has no noticeable symptoms or signs, so eye care in St. Louis needs to begin with an complete eye exam using the latest computerized testing in order to diagnose glaucoma. Once diagnosed our practice will help you manage the progression of glaucoma, prescribe drops and can perform laser or more advanced surgery to promote healing. There are very successful treatments available for glaucoma and other serious eye conditions but they have to be diagnosed as early as possible for the best chance of preserving excellent vision so, please get your eyes checked annually.
