Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness among people 60 and older. It is caused when fluid builds up in the eye, leading to pressure and damage to the optic nerve. Because this disease progresses slowly, many people who have it do not realize a change in their vision until it has advanced to a point where sight has been compromised significantly. Once vision is lost, it cannot be regained. However, there are treatment options available that can help slow this process. At Apex Eye, we use the most advanced diagnostic tools to detect any evidence of glaucoma in the early stages. Our physicians use any of the following methods to reduce pressure on the optic nerve and help prevent further damage:
- Eye drops
- Oral medications
- Traditional surgery
- Laser surgery
Patients with this condition should have the pressure in their eyes monitored regularly. For patients in Cincinnati, OH, with advanced glaucoma, our team includes a fellowship-trained Glaucoma Specialist who provides treatment in three of our locations.
