The eyes are connected to the brain with the optic nerve. When this nerve is damaged in a certain pattern, most commonly from high intraocular pressure effects, this is a condition known as glaucoma. There are several different types of glaucoma, but primary open angle glaucoma is the most common. The art in caring for glaucoma is timely detection, treatment, and long term monitoring. At North Texas Eye Specialists in Irving, we are proud to have the latest technology to be able to detect minute changes in a patient's nerve structure or nerve function.
We offer medical treatment, laser therapy, and surgical treatment of glaucoma. Unfortunately, we do not have a way to prevent or cure glaucoma. With early diagnosis and management, however, we are able to maintain the disease.
Here at North Texas Eye Specialists in Las Colinas, Dr. Husain and her team are dedicated to providing the best of care for you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us today.
