Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the U.S. In fact, half of the people who have glaucoma don’t know they have the disease and are not aware they are losing vision. This disease is the deterioration of the optic nerve, usually associated with a high pressure in the eye, called the intraocular pressure (IOP).
Dr. Cain will work with you to develop a treatment plan to safely lower your IOP; treatments include eye drops, laser therapy, and surgery. The SLT Cool Laser glaucoma treatment is performed in our office.
