Glaucoma Evaluation & Screening
At Optical Edge, our doctors are trained and certified to diagnose and treat glaucoma. Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness and visual impairment in the United States that can lead to permanent loss of vision. Glaucoma generally provides no warning signs of symptoms of disease, making testing an important part of a full vision exam.
During your comprehensive eye exam, your optometrist will always conduct a glaucoma screening checking for eye pressures and evaluation of your optic nerve. Based on these results, your doctor may ask you to return for a glaucoma evaluation which includes supplemental testing evaluating your optic nerve, checking the drainage system of your eyes, and a visual field test.
