Glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable blindness in the United States. This disease is known as the "silent thief of sight" because there is no pain, no noticeable symptoms, and no cure. GREAT NEWS! Glaucoma can be controlled and vision can be preserved – IF DETECTED EARLY.
Our optic nerve fiber analyzer is a fast, comfortable and non-intrusive scanning laser exam that provides the earliest possible detection of glaucoma BEFORE vision loss is experienced.
Those greatest at risk of glaucoma include:
- People over 40 years of age
- African Americans
- People with a family history of glaucoma
- Long-term steroid users
- People that are nearsighted
