Your optic nerve is the main connector from your eye to your brain. It serves as the way your brain processes what it sees. When the optic nerve gets damaged by abnormal pressure in your eye, you are diagnosed with a group of eye conditions called glaucoma.
Glaucoma causes blind spots and ultimately blindness; it is the leading cause of blindness in American’s over the age of 60. The damage this disease causes is not reversible, so it’s important to see a board-certified doctor as quickly as possible.
In your yearly eye exam our board-certified doctors inspect the drainage angle of your eye (gonioscopy), measure your eye pressure (tonometry), evaluate your optic nerve (ophthalmoscopy), and test the visual field of each eye (perimetry). These tests provide early detection of retinopathy diabetes, macular degeneration, and glaucoma.
If you suspect that you may have glaucoma, or if you’ve been experiencing changes in your eyesight, schedule an appointment and we’ll evaluate your eye.
Glaucoma testing is not painful and is comparable to a normal vision test.

We want to ensure you feel confident in the health of your eyes. No question is too simple-a diagnosis can be scary and overwhelming.
We’re here to help you every step of the way.
As eye doctors we see varying symptoms of glaucoma depending on the type and severity of the disease.
Common symptoms can include:
For the most common type of glaucoma (open-angle glaucoma), symptoms gradually increase so subtly that it’s hard to notice. Once symptoms do appear, often the disease is fairly advanced.
It’s important to get your eyes checked once a year, especially if you are over the age of 60, have a family history of glaucoma, or if you have certain medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, or sickle cell anemia.
The good news is that glaucoma can be slowed and sometimes stopped with ongoing medical care.
It’s important to have a care team who can help you get an accurate diagnosis and define an ongoing treatment plan.
Also, advances in glaucoma treatment are progressing. Innovative technology, like the Equinox system we use here at CLEAR, is helping glaucoma patients live better lives.
Glaucoma occurs when your optic nerve gets damaged by increased pressure in the eye.
Pressure happens with the naturally occurring fluid in your eye (called aqueous humor) can’t drain through a tissue called the trabecular meshwork. When the fluid can’t drain, pressure increases, damaging your optic nerve.
If left untreated, glaucoma will eventually cause permanent blindness. It’s a serious disease that is the leading cause of blindness for people over the age of 60.
If you catch the disease early, the progression of blindness can be slowed and sometimes stopped. People with glaucoma will generally need ongoing treatment for the rest of their lives.
There are four different types of glaucoma:
