Glaucoma Testing

Safeguarding sight: the importance of Glaucoma Testing

Regular glaucoma testing is crucial for monitoring your vision health and catching issues early on. Glaucoma often has no symptoms in the early stages, making routine screenings vital. If you have risk factors such as age, family history, ethnicity, or certain medical conditions, it is even more important to get tested.

So what is glaucoma exactly? Glaucoma is a progressive eye disease that can lead to optic nerve damage and vision loss if left untreated. In its early stages, most people will be asymptomatic. However, once the disease has advanced to later stages, it starts affecting peripheral vision, which will lead to tunnel vision or blindness.

During a glaucoma test, we will assess your intraocular pressures, optic nerve health, and visual field to detect signs of glaucoma. Early detection is key for effective management using treatments like eye drops, laser therapy, or surgery.
