“Routine” or comprehensive eye exams are essential in the early detection of eye disease. Unfortunately, most eye diseases have no symptoms whatsoever until the damage is done and irreversible. At Focus Eye Care, we have invested over $300K to enhance the office with state of the art equipment and better care for our patients! This equipment allows us to diagnose eye disease earlier, but also allows us to confirm the treatment is working as we monitor for progression.
Glaucoma is a serious eye disease that can cause blindness when not detected early enough or treated aggressively. Often in glaucoma, the passages that allow fluid inside the eye to drain become blocked, or the eye produces too much fluid to drain adequately. This results in the amount of fluid in the eye building up and often causing increased pressure inside the eye. This increased pressure damages the optic nerve, which connects the eye to the brain. The optic nerve is the main carrier of vision information to the brain. Damage to it results in less information sent to the brain and a loss of vision.
