What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma can have a direct impact on your overall quality of life and detecting the disease early is important for your vision. Known as the “silent thief of sight,” glaucoma can sometimes only show symptoms once damage to the optic nerve has already been done. Since the symptoms can be hard to detect, scheduling an appointment with our glaucoma specialist is a must.
Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes loss of peripheral vision and can lead to blindness. Chronically high eye pressure can lead to damage of the optic nerve. Treatment of Glaucoma includes eye drops or laser surgery. Goodman Eye Center offers the San Francisco area with glaucoma treatments that will give you a head start on your path to healthy vision.
