Glaucoma is a common eye condition that must be treated to avoid the risk of vision loss or blindness. The elevated eye pressure, over time, damages the optic nerve. When the optic nerve can no longer send signals to the brain, vision is damaged and cannot be restored. The need for treatment is urgent.
Severe glaucoma treatments
The elevated eye pressure of glaucoma can be managed with medicated eye drops or with a “MIGS” (minimally invasive glaucoma surgery), but every client is different, and these treatments may not be sufficient for everyone. In certain cases, Dr. Soroudi can treat the condition with an implantable valve.
