Early detection of glaucoma mitigates sight loss for many, but in some cases, no treatment is sought until glaucoma symptoms arise. Glaucoma causes gradual loss of peripheral vision, eventually leading to tunnel vision. Few other symptoms exist. This is why it is important to see a specialists as soon as possible to determine if you have glaucoma.

There are several types of glaucoma, open-angle glaucoma is the most common. Other less common forms are low-tension glaucoma, angle-closure glaucoma, congenital glaucoma, pigmentary glaucoma, and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma. Glaucoma tests, performed at all ICON eye examinations, can detect the disease in early stages and identify the type of glaucoma.

  • Visual acuity tests measure how well you see at various distances
  • Visual field tests peripheral vision, one of the early symptoms of glaucoma.
  • Dilation is the process of dilating the pupils with eye drops so that the doctor can examine the retina and optic nerve
  • A tonometer measures the pressure inside the eye
  • Pachymetry measures corneal thickness with ultrasonic waves
If detected early enough, treatments for glaucoma can prevent or postpone blindness. Medicated eye drops are used to lower the eye’s pressure. In some cases, laser treatments may be recommended. Laser treatments for glaucoma create new openings for fluids to exit the eye. This in turn lowers the pressure inside the eye. ICON Eyecare uses the LUMENS trio laser to enlarge the eye’s drainage holes and can decrease increased loss of vision.
