Glaucoma Treatment

At Southern Eye Group, we believe everyone should be able to enjoy sharp, crystal-clear vision at every stage in life, and our mission is to make that happen.

That said, we offer treatments for a wide range of eye conditions, including multiple options for glaucoma surgery.

Glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable blindness in the US, and because it produces no symptoms or pain in its early stages, millions of glaucoma sufferers don’t even know they have it. While scientists are still working to learn more about this condition, the main known cause of glaucoma is a relative increase in intraocular pressure. In other words, an increase in the pressure level inside of the eye. This occurs due to a problem in the regulation of aqueous fluid, the fluid that fills the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye. These are the spaces that support the cornea and house the lens of the eye, respectively. Normally, the body creates aqueous fluid and circulates it throughout the eye before draining it through specialized channels at the rear of the eye. However, if the body begins to produce too much aqueous fluid or is unable to drain the fluid fast enough, intraocular pressure (IOP) rises, eventually leading to glaucoma.
