Glaucoma is a stealthy eye condition that affects millions of people worldwide, often without showing any symptoms until it’s too late. At Invision Eye Clinic, we believe in the power of knowledge and early detection. In this article, we explore what glaucoma is, how we diagnose it at our state-of-the-art facility in Oakville, and how you can take proactive steps to protect your vision.
What is Glaucoma?
The Sneaky Thief of Sight: Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, the vital pathway connecting your eye to your brain. This damage can result in vision loss and, in severe cases, blindness.
The concerning aspect of glaucoma is its often asymptomatic nature. In its early stages, you may not notice any changes in your vision. This is why regular eye exams are crucial for early detection and intervention.
Certain factors, such as age, family history, and elevated intraocular pressure, increase your risk of developing glaucoma. However, it can affect anyone, so vigilance is essential.
Diagnosing Glaucoma at Invision Eye Clinic
Comprehensive Eye Exams: At Invision Eye Clinic, our first line of defence against glaucoma is comprehensive eye examinations. During your visit, our skilled optometrists will:
Measure your intraocular pressure (IOP): Elevated IOP is a primary risk factor for glaucoma.
Examine the optic nerve: We use advanced imaging technology to assess the health of your optic nerve.
Visual field testing: This assesses your peripheral vision, which is often affected in glaucoma.
Advanced Diagnostic Tools: Our Oakville location is equipped with cutting-edge diagnostic equipment that enables us to detect glaucoma at its earliest stages. This technology allows for precise and accurate assessment.
Personalized Care: If glaucoma is detected, our experienced team will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Early intervention can often slow or prevent further vision loss.
