Glaucoma is an eye condition that damages the optic nerve of your eye. It is caused by pressure building up in the eye. Glaucoma rarely causes symptoms or pain in its initial stages, which is why it is important to visit your eye doctor or ophthalmologist in New York for regular glaucoma tests.
Watch this video for information on how eye doctors and ophthalmologists treat glaucoma. While there are many different treatment options, selective laser trabeculoplasty is the method preferred by many ophthalmologists.
