Preserving Your Vision

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that affect and damage the optic nerve. This damage to the optic nerve is often caused by increased pressure in the eye. 

At Rock optiX, we strive to help you navigate glaucoma and diagnose the early signs during your comprehensive eye exam. 

Early detection is crucial—contact us to book your comprehensive eye exam to help get ahead of glaucoma.

Monitoring Glaucoma Progression

Glaucoma can develop when too much fluid pressure (intraocular pressure) builds up in the eye, damaging the optic nerve—although this isn’t the only cause. Glaucoma can result in a disruption of image transmission to the brain.

Risk factors linked to glaucoma can include: 

  • A family history of glaucoma
  • Medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure
  • Previous eye surgeries or injuries
  • Being extremely nearsighted or farsighted

Vision loss resulting from glaucoma cannot be recovered. Although glaucoma development is more common in individuals over 60, it can develop at any age.

Glaucoma Management at Rock optiX

At Rock optiX, we recognize that early detection is essential to preventing the progression of glaucoma and potential vision loss. Our team believes in a thorough and experienced approach to glaucoma management.

We use diagnostic tools such as Goldmann applanation tonometry, Zeiss Cirrus, & Humphrey Visual Field to help measure intraocular pressure and diagnose glaucoma.

Goldmann applanation tonometry is the most common type of tonometry test used for measuring eye pressure. 

This test can help our team determine if further glaucoma testing is required.
