How to detect Glaucoma and how to treat it?
Glaucoma is an eye disease to be taken seriously. Indeed, depending on the nature of the glaucoma and its progress, it may be necessary to undergo an operation. Dr. Zwillinger, an ophthalmic surgeon specializing in glaucoma, can advise you.
Glaucoma, an eye disease to be detected early
Due to its irreversible evolution and its difficult to detect symptoms, glaucoma is one of the diseases to be detected as early as possible. It is recommended to consult an ophthalmologist regularly to monitor the quality of your field of vision. In young children, a consultation in pediatric ophthalmology can effectively detect congenital glaucoma, which is considered an ophthalmologic emergency.
Other cases of glaucoma are not considered emergencies but require specific treatments to prevent deformation of the optic disc.
Whatever type of glaucoma you have, Dr. Zwillinger will see you and perform an optic nerve and visual field examination to determine the most appropriate treatment for you.
