Glaucoma Treatment in Northeast Pennsylvania

Just like your body has blood pressure, the eyeball has its own internal pressure. This is known as intra-ocular pressure, or IOP. When this IOP increases to dangerous levels, it can damage the optic nerve that sends signals to the brain. This can result in decreased peripheral vision and even lead to blindness if not treated early and properly.

In fact, glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in the world, and it affects an estimated 3 million Americans, causing blindness in over 120,000 individuals. Even if those with glaucoma don’t go blind, their vision can be severely impaired by increased IOP.

Recognizing the Signs of Glaucoma
Between eye tests, it is important for patients to pay attention to symptoms that could indicate onset of glaucoma. These include:
1

Eye pain

2

Headaches

3

Rainbow-colored halos around lights

4

Nausea and vomiting

5

Loss of peripheral vision

Treating glaucoma is most successful during its early stages, when minimal damage has occurred. This is why a comprehensive eye exam from the Northeastern Eye Institute always includes a test to measure your intra-ocular pressure and see if anything is wrong for symptoms occur.

Contact Northeastern Eye Institute online or call our glaucoma surgeon in Scranton at (570) 342-3145 or toll-free at 855-204-6888 today to schedule an eye exam and glaucoma screening or an appointment with one of our glaucoma specialists.
