Glaucoma Treatment in Boston at Eyes Over Copley

Glaucoma is among the top causes of permanent vision loss in older adults. That is why it's important to have your eyes tested for this disease and start treatment if needed. At Eyes Over Copley, our Boston optometrists offer glaucoma screening to help protect your eyes from vision loss.

Causes of Glaucoma

Glaucoma occurs when you have optic nerve damage, which can result from increased pressure in the eyes in some cases. In fact, most cases of glaucoma involve intraocular pressure that is higher than normal, although there is a type of glaucoma that is not associated with increased pressure. 

Risk Factors for Glaucoma

You might have a higher chance of having glaucoma if you have one or more risk factors for this eye disease. These risk factors include being over 60 years old, having elevated eye pressure and having a family history of glaucoma. Your risk might also increase if you have diabetes or other medical problems that can affect your eyes or if you have vision impairment from nearsightedness. 

Symptoms of Glaucoma

The symptoms might vary depending on the type of glaucoma that is present. The most common type, open-angle glaucoma, might not cause any noticeable symptoms at first. However, you should start to have blind spots in your central vision or peripheral vision as the disease progresses. You might also end up with tunnel vision in the later stages of glaucoma. 

Diagnosing Glaucoma

At Eyes Over Copley, our Boston optometrist can check for glaucoma a few different ways. Tests for this disease might include tonometry to measure the amount of eye pressure you have, tests that detect optic nerve damage and visual field tests to check for blind spots. Depending on your results, our optometrist will discuss treatment options with you.
