You received a diagnosis from your eye doctor and they have diagnosed glaucoma, but what can you do to ease your mind, and find a good ophthalmologist that specializes in glaucoma treatment?
What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a serious eye disease caused by a build-up of intraocular pressure (IOP) inside the eye that effects the optic nerve, causing blurred vision. Glaucoma can be hereditary, and if left untreated can lead to blindness. Learn more.
Where can you do more research on your diagnosis?
There are a number of websites available with an abundance of information on glaucoma, including the Corrective Eye Center website. One of the most popular sites is that of the Glaucoma Research Foundation, or GRF. The GRF website is easy to navigate and discusses information regarding medications, glaucoma surgery and how to receive financial assistance.
