Many eye conditions, like glaucoma, do not present symptoms to patients, and when symptoms finally do present themselves it’s often at a time when irreversible vision damage has already been done. Glaucoma, which is a group of eye conditions that lead to the damage of the optic nerve, has several forms: open angle glaucoma, and there is low-tension glaucoma or normal-tension glaucoma. We are able to test for glaucoma with a comprehensive eye exam once the eyes are dilated with dilation drops. It’s important to catch the development of glaucoma early because there is no cure, and vision damage that occurs due to glaucoma is permanent.
