Treating Glaucoma

Glaucoma is actually a group of very serious diseases that can damage the eye’s optic nerve, and result in blindness if left untreated. Geisinger’s ophthalmology specialists have leading-edge experience in medical and surgical treatment of glaucoma, including a full range of laser procedures. 

Our experts use static and kinetic perimetry, as well as high-resolution photography, to determine the type and degree of the condition. The most common form of glaucoma usually causes a buildup of pressure inside your eye, so great care is taken to relieve the pressure through medication, laser or surgical methods.
