Expert Glaucoma Treatment for Patients
Glaucoma is a serious health condition characterized by a gradual loss of vision due to increased pressure inside the eye. Early detection is an essential part of effective glaucoma treatment for Friendswood, Texas, and South Houston area patients affected by this potentially complex condition. Elite Vision Care has highly experienced optometrists to ensure that our patients have access to the most advanced care treatments available for the treatment of this and other eye health conditions.
The Treatment You Need, When You Need It
Prompt identification of glaucoma by our eyecare specialist in League City will allow patients to seek treatment in the earliest stages of the disease. Several treatment options can be considered for glaucoma. These include:
- Prescription eye drops
- Traditional surgery
- Laser surgery
A treatment plan is developed following an evaluation of the disease. The stage of its advancement and the symptoms experienced by the patient may recommend one course of treatment over another. Your optometrist can tell you more about the differences between the treatment options that are best suited to the glaucoma affecting you.
Advanced glaucoma can cause vision loss, so the ultimate goal of treatment and management is to preserve vision. However, glaucoma is a condition that can be managed with the right clinical approach. You and your optometrist will work closely together to monitor the progress of each course of treatment. Prescription medications are most effective when taken according to the schedule outlined by your doctor.
