Glaucoma is an eye disease, which if not properly treated, can lead to blindness. 
While there is no cure for glaucoma, there are effective treatments that can help 
to preserve your vision. In most cases, glaucoma worsens slowly, and there are 
no detectable symptoms to indicate if it is worsening.

If you have glaucoma, it is necessary to have regular follow-up visits with your eye doctor to monitor for signs 
of progression.

Our Glaucoma eye doctors are Board Certified Ophthalmologists with years of hands-on experience in diagnosing and treating glaucoma. At Phillips Eye Specialists we are available to discuss the state of your glaucoma and future treatment protocol.

Glaucoma is one of the most serious eye diseases and here at Phillips Eye Specialists we take the time to make sure you’re properly cared for. Glaucoma causes damage to the optic nerve via increased pressure inside the eye. Fluids that circulate through the eye to give proper nourishment are called the Aqueous Humor. Glaucoma becomes a problem when this fluid gets backed up and increases the internal pressure of the eye. When the internal pressure is too high it then causes damage to the optic nerve, impacting your vision.

Glaucoma can lead to blindness if not properly treated. While there may not currently be
a cure for Glaucoma, there are effective treatments that can help preserve your vision. In most cases, Glaucoma deteriorates slowly, and there are no detectable symptoms to indicate if it is worsening. It is extremely important if you have Glaucoma or have a family history of Glaucoma to come visit us at Phillips Eye Specialists.
