Guarding Your Vision Against the Silent Thief

Understanding Glaucoma

Glaucoma, often called the "silent thief of sight," can gradually steal your vision without warning. At Vivid Visions Optometry, we are dedicated to early detection and proactive management to help protect your precious sight.

Causes and Risk Factors

Glaucoma is primarily caused by increased intraocular pressure (IOP), which damages the optic nerve. Several factors can raise your risk of developing glaucoma, including:

- Age: People over 60 are at higher risk.

- Family History: A genetic predisposition to glaucoma can increase your risk.

- Medical Conditions: Conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure.

- Ethnicity: Some ethnic groups have a higher prevalence of glaucoma.

Symptoms and Early Detection

In its early stages, glaucoma often presents no symptoms. As it progresses, you may notice:

- Gradual loss of peripheral (side) vision.

- Tunnel vision in advanced stages.

Regular comprehensive eye exams are crucial because early detection is key to managing glaucoma effectively. Once vision loss occurs, it cannot be restored.

Diagnosing Glaucoma at Vivid Visions Optometry

Dr. David Antonyan, O.D., and our team use advanced technology to measure intraocular pressure, examine the optic nerve, and assess your field of vision. These tests are vital in diagnosing glaucoma and determining the best treatment approach for you.

Treatment Options

While there is no cure for glaucoma, various treatments can slow or prevent vision loss:

- Medicated Eye Drops: To reduce eye pressure.

- Oral Medications: Sometimes used in conjunction with eye drops.

- Laser Therapy: To improve drainage and lower eye pressure.

- Surgical Procedures: For advanced cases or when other treatments are not effective.
