Glaucoma – the Master of Disguise!

Imagine your eyes as a symphony, a delicate balance of elements playing in perfect harmony. But when that harmony is disrupted, it opens the door for a sneaky thief of vision called glaucoma. This serious condition revolves around the dance of intraocular pressure – an accumulation of pressure that can silently damage your optic nerve, the crucial link between your eyes and your brain.

Glaucoma operates in the shadows, a master of disguise without any obvious symptoms or pain. That’s why we stress the importance of taking charge of your eye health and making regular eye check-ups a priority. Yearly screenings become vital, especially if you’re over 40, have a family history of diabetes or glaucoma, or deal with high blood pressure or hypertension. These factors can mess with your eye pressure, and catching it early is the secret to safeguarding your precious vision.

Here at our practice, we use advanced tonometry – a painless method that measures intraocular pressure using a gentle puff of air. This helps us check your eye health accurately and catch any potential signs of glaucoma. Remember, your vision is way too valuable to gamble with.
