Navigating Your Glaucoma Treatment Options at Henderson Eye Care

When it comes to preserving your vision, understanding your options for glaucoma treatments is crucial. At Henderson Eye Care, we are committed to providing comprehensive care and educating our patients about their treatment choices.

Understanding Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, which is vital for good vision. This damage is often caused by abnormally high pressure in your eye. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in people over 55.

Your Glaucoma Treatment Options

At Henderson Eye Care, we offer a range of glaucoma treatments designed to lower and control intraocular pressure (IOP), which can damage the optic nerve transmitting visual information to the brain. Let’s explore these options:

  • Medication: Eye drops are often the first step in glaucoma treatment. They work by reducing the formation of fluid in the front of the eye or increasing its outflow, thereby lowering the eye pressure.
  • Laser Treatment: If eye drops are not sufficient to lower your eye pressure, we may recommend laser treatment. This procedure helps increase the flow of fluid out of the eye, reducing pressure.
  • Surgery: Surgery is another option for glaucoma treatment. The type of surgery will depend on the type and severity of your glaucoma and the general health of your eye. Surgery can help lower the pressure when medication is not sufficient.
