What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a medical term to broadly described optic nerve damage from a variety of causes. There are many types of glaucoma and proper diagnosis requires a complete exam with an ophthalmologist and optometrist over time. Many patients do not realize they have glaucoma until it is too late because it usually impact peripheral field first. One of the most common forms of glaucoma known as primary open angle glaucoma is characterized as nerve damage due to elevated eye pressures. This is not to be confused with high blood pressure. Early diagnosis of glaucoma is crucial in preventing potential blindness that can be caused by unmanaged glaucoma.
We manage all forms of glaucoma and provide minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) options with cataract surgery.
MIGS (Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery)
Most forms of glaucoma are managed with the use of eye drops, in office lasers, and surgery. We are proud to offer all types of management solutions including minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) in conjunction with cataract surgery. Dr. Logothetis was the 2nd surgeon in Ohio to implant the Hydrus microstent and was happy to find it to be effective in reducing eye pressures in his patients with glaucoma.
