Glaucoma is a serious, common problem. Millions of Americans suffer from it, and that number includes many patients in the Wilkes-Barre area. If left untreated, glaucoma can cause blindness. Fortunately, there are a number of treatment options.

At the Northeastern Eye Institute, we can diagnose and then treat glaucoma. Early diagnosis is crucial, which is why we recommend frequent eye exams, especially as you get older.

Treatment options for glaucoma include:

  • Eye drops
  • Medication
  • Laser surgery
  • Traditional surgery

Our experienced doctors and eye surgeons will work with you to determine which treatment option is appropriate. This begins with a confirmed diagnosis of glaucoma, which we have the equipment and experience to provide.

We know how serious glaucoma is, and we're committed to helping you fight it. And if you're looking for experienced help addressing this serious condition, we are the right place for you.

If you are experiencing glaucoma in or around the Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania area, you need to seek treatment as soon as possible. Please call the Northeastern Eye Institute today at 570-342-3145 for a consultation.
