What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions related to high inner-eye pressure, which can cause damage to the optic nerve over time. Without timely detection and treatment, this damage can eventually result in severe vision loss and, in rare cases, blindness. There is unfortunately no cure for glaucoma, but our Michigan low vision team has the technology and training to ensure the earliest detection and treatment possible. Through comprehensive eye exams, which include testing of your intraocular pressure and evaluations of your optic nerve health, we can detect signs of glaucoma early, so we can protect your vision and keep your eyes healthy.
Beyond detection and treatment, we can also work with you to develop customized treatment plans that may include low vision aids, vision rehabilitation, and other ways to help you maintain your independence despite vision loss due to glaucoma or other eye conditions. By working closely with you, our low vision optometrists can help you achieve the best possible outcomes and manage the challenges of living with glaucoma.
