Symptoms: Painless loss of vision, typically seen in patients with strong family history
Treatment: SouthEast Eye Physicians & Surgeons tailors treatment plans to preserve the optic nerve from further damage with eye medications, lasers, and surgery. We work with patients to enhance compliance by offering both name brand and generic medications along help in obtaining affordable necessary medications. SouthEast Eye Physicians & Surgeons has selective laser trabeculectomy (SLT) to open the trabecular mesh work to lower patient IOP without drops. When it is time, we can perform surgery to keep IOP low delaying further damage to optic nerve and vision.
