Glaucoma - The Silent Thief
At Vance Thompson Vision, we know the importance of life worth seeing. We also know that sometimes, Glaucoma can get in the way of that. That’s why we lead the nation with top of the line Glaucoma research and procedures with surgeons that specialize in treatment. One treatment is MIGS, a minimally invasive glaucoma surgery. With many different options for MIGS, vision correction is only a decision away.
One of our premiere MIGS options is the Glaukos iStent. Through the use of the iStent, your eye pressure is lowered, the burden of medicinal need is lessened, and your surgery is less invasive and more comfortable. Through clinical testing at Vance Thompson Vision, we discovered that the Glaukos iStent has a high success rate and provides life-changing results. If you’re a cataract patient that suffers from glaucoma, consider consulting your doctor about the potential benefits of the iStent.
Another top tier surgical option is the XEN Gel Stent. This stent is a soft, gelatin-like device that’s placed through a corneal, self-sealing incision. The gel stent will lower the pressure in your eye, much like the iStent. For more information about The XEN Gel Stent and your glaucoma correction options, click here.
Glaucoma, the ‘silent thief,’ steals your vision over time. Because it's a progressive disease, most people don’t even realize their vision is diminishing. After years, Glaucoma damages your optic nerve and fills your eye with fluid. Nearly two and a half million people experience it, yet at least half go undiagnosed. Don’t let Glaucoma steal your vision. Call today to schedule your free glaucoma consultation to take charge of your eye care.
