Can it be treated?
There is currently no cure for glaucoma, but there are several effective therapeutic procedures that can be implemented to slow the progression of the disease.
We have different eye medication and laser treatments that we can perform painlessly and conveniently right here in our office.
We offer laser procedures such as – selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) – to open the outflow path and relieve/reduce the eye pressure. This therapy is performed with the goal of slowing or stopping the progressive damage of the optic nerve and visual field. Through early detection, treatment, and close monitoring of the condition, we can help prevent many patients from suffering symptomatic vision loss.
Charles J Fetterman MD PC and his team can begin treating glaucoma with an eye exam. Our testing will reveal whether or not your eye is damaged from glaucoma. Once we know what we’re dealing with, we can begin to work to correct the problem.
