Glaucoma Management & Treatment
Glaucoma is one of the world’s leading causes of blindness. Though there is currently no cure for glaucoma, with early diagnosis and prompt treatment, the condition can be controlled and the patient’s eyesight can be saved. At Lifetime Vision Source, we provide high-quality glaucoma diagnosis and management services to safeguard your vision and improve your quality of life.
It Starts With a Feeling of Pressure
Glaucoma is caused by abnormally high levels of intraocular pressure (IOP), which is often the result of a blockage in the eye’s drainage canals. Due to the blockage, eye fluids can’t drain properly, so pressure will begin to build at the front of the eye, pushing the lens further back. This in turn causes the vitreous humor (the fluid in the rear chamber of the eye) to press against the optic nerve, eventually damaging it.
Unfortunately, glaucoma tends to be asymptomatic in the early stages and thus difficult to detect without the proper tools. The best way to get around this problem is by coming in regularly for eye exams. At Lifetime Vision Source, we can detect glaucoma in the earliest stages and provide prompt treatment to slow or halt the disease’s progression, thanks to our state-of-the-art equipment in Jamestown, ND.
Stop Glaucoma Before It Worsens
Regular eye exams are recommended for everybody, but people in their senior years are advised to have their eyes checked at least twice a year. The higher your individual risk factors, the more frequent the exams should be. Call us today at (701) 252-2020 to schedule an eye exam with Lifetime Vision Source.
