Expect superior results in the treatment of glaucoma at Siepser Laser Eyecare.
Dr. Siepser's advanced experience has evolved from treating glaucoma not only with a medical drop therapy, which can be difficult to administer and follow, to surgical intervention for some patients, with excellent results and eliminating the need for drop therapy. For others we provide the use of newer drug therapies that have revolutionized the care for glaucoma patients with once daily applications and fewer side effects.
Glaucoma is the progressive loss of peripheral vision as a result of elevated intraocular pressure, or poor circulation to the eye. This progressive nerve damage can cause irreversible blindness, and is more frequent after the age of 40.
Patients diagnosed with glaucoma in their 40's, 50's and 60's have the option to undergo an advanced laser procedure that reduces or eliminates the need for drops in 80% of patients. Consider drop-free control of your glaucoma as an alternative to remembering proper dosing and care that were previously used to manage vision loss in glaucoma management.
