GLAUCOMA

Glaucoma is a disease that causes optic nerve damage resulting in vision loss.

It is commonly associated with high eye pressure but can also occur with normal eye pressure. 

As a fellowship-trained specialist, Dr. Gupta is experienced in the latest medical, laser, and surgical techniques to help manage glaucoma. She utilizes the latest technology in diagnosis, visual field testing, optic nerve imaging, and treatment options.

HOW  IS  GLAUCOMA  TREATED?

Early on, there are no noticeable symptoms, vision remains unchanged and there is no associated pain, so it’s very common for glaucoma to go unnoticed.  However, early detection and appropriate follow up, glaucoma can be managed very effectively. Glaucoma cannot be cured and any vision loss is irreversible. Early treatment can help stop the progression of glaucoma and prevent blindness.
