Glaucoma is a complex and silent disease of the optic nerve that can lead to blindness if undiagnosed or left untreated. Most patients with Glaucoma have no symptoms and are diagnosed at routine exams. Traditionally associated with high eye pressure, glaucoma can also occur in patients whose eye pressures are normal, and the only changes are occurring in the optic nerves. Since the vast majority of patients do not feel anything different with their eyes until the condition is fairly advanced, it is paramount that you have regular eye exams with an experienced eye doctor who is able to diagnose early changes in your eyes and prevent vision loss associated with glaucoma.
At Focus Eyecare Centre, we have the most accurate diagnostic tools in glaucoma detection and monitoring. We are considered a ‘hub’ for glaucoma screening and management by local family physicians, and we rigorously co-manage all cases according to current College regulations.
