The Latest Treatments for Glaucoma
At Eye Doctors of Washington, we are committed to staying up-to-date with the very latest in eye disease management. As a leading cause of preventable blindness, glaucoma is a condition for which our team is proud to offer a variety of effective treatment options. To detect glaucoma, we utilize the Diopsys® NOVA Vision Testing System, which can help us identify the problem, as well as monitor treatment progress.
The best treatment for you will depend on the type of glaucoma you have developed. From topical eye drops to surgery, EDOW is committed to helping you find the best solution for your specific needs. We offer multiple state-of-the-art laser treatments as well as innovative intraocular lens implant options to help relieve the eye pressure distinctive of glaucoma. We also offer trabeculectomy surgery, which creates a new drainage site for fluid buildup that causes the abnormal pressure inside your eye.
Although these treatment options can help control the progression of glaucoma, it is vital you attend routine eye exams. This can help you receive an early stage diagnosis and prevent glaucoma’s damaging effects, as well as allow your doctor to monitor your progress as you go through the treatment process.
