Getting glaucoma testing done is extremely important. Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that causes damage to the optic nerve and consequently causes vision loss. Usually, but not always, abnormally high pressure in the eye causes the damage. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness so an early diagnosis is critical. Since glaucoma develops so gradually you most likely won’t be aware that you have it in the early stages. Signs and symptoms may not be present until it’s reached its advanced stages. Once it’s reached its advanced stages, it is more difficult to treat. Since glaucoma is so serious and symptoms may not be present until it’s progressed, we highly recommend that you make an appointment with our Vegas eye doctor, Paul Thompson, OD for a comprehensive (complete & thorough) eye exam (which includes glaucoma testing) even if you aren’t experiencing any vision problems.
