Regular Eye Exams Detect Glaucoma Early
Here at AAPECS Atlantic Eye Care, we know how important your vision is to you. While some vision deterioration is normal over time, we don’t believe that you should be asked to accept this result without the appropriate help. We have experienced doctors, knowledgeable staff and state of the art technology to ensure that you get the Glaucoma treatment you need, right when you need it. With regular eye exams in Virginia Beach, we can ensure that symptoms are noticed quickly and a treatment plan is started early.
What Is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a serious condition because the increased pressure in the eye will cause the vision to gradually deteriorate. One of the most important parts of treating glaucoma is discovering it early. If glaucoma is diagnosed early, there are several ways we may treat it such as:
- Laser surgery
- Traditional surgery
- Prescription eye drops
Once the disease has been discovered, our experienced eye doctors will set up a treatment plan that is customized for your unique situation. Every patient is at a different stage of the disease, which requires a more in-depth analysis at the best ways to resolve the problem. Once the problem has advanced, the vision may be compromised, so the goal is to manage the disease with the appropriate clinical approach. Our eye doctors will work closely with you to determine what stage your disease is at, and what treatments will be most effective at minimizing the damage. If you follow your eye doctor’s treatment plan, your vision can be preserved for years to come.
