Glaucoma testing in San Diego CA

San Diego CA eye exam

It is important to have your eyes checked on a periodic basis to make sure you are not developing any eye diseases or conditions. If you have not had an eye exam over the past year, you will want to make an appointment to come in to our vision practice, Optometry Cabana, for a thorough San Diego CA eye exam.

At our vision practice, you will be seen by our top-notch optometrist, Dr. Tania Stevens, who will provide you with a complete and expert San Diego CA eye exam. Dr. Stevens is a therapeutic eye doctor who can evaluate and manage most eye health conditions. During our eye exams, eyes are screened for many different eye conditions including: cataracts; glaucoma, macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; hypertensive retinopathy; conjunctivitis; ocular allergies; dry eyes; and many other conditions of the cornea, macula, and retina. Initial glaucoma testing consists of a quick, simple, and painless eye exam which will measure the intraocular pressure of your eyes. If this eye pressure is found to be high, additional testing or examination may be needed to determine whether or not you have glaucoma. Glaucoma shows no symptoms in the early stages, but it can go on to cause serious vision problem if left untreated. It is important that glaucoma is found and treated early, because it is during this early time that the disease can easily be treated by our optometrist with medicated eye drops. However, if the disease is not diagnosed early, it will certainly progress and eventually cause optic nerve damage which cannot be reversed. Additionally, in advanced cases of glaucoma, patients usually need to be treated with laser eye surgery or regular eye surgery, simply to stop the progression of the disease. In fact, one thing that a great many eye conditions have in common is that early detection is the key to successful treatment, and will allow your precious vision to be saved.
