Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in people over 60 years of age. It makes it harder and harder to see, and it will progress unless it's properly treated. At Axis Vision Care, we specialize in glaucoma testing and treatment.
You could be at risk of glaucoma if:
You're at least 40 years old
You have diabetes or pre-diabetes
You use corticosteroids
You've had eye trauma before
You naturally have poor sight
Are you at risk? Schedule glaucoma testing right away at our office in Washington, Williamsburg, Tiffin or Fairfield, IA.
If you have glaucoma, you need to start glaucoma treatment right away. The goal of the treatment is to halt or slow damage to your optic nerve. We also aim to correct refractive issues. In some cases, surgery is the best option. Follow this link to learn more about glaucoma and what treatment options are out there.
