Glaucoma increases the pressure in the eye, which can lead to optic nerve damage if left untreated. At Ian Emslie Optometrist, we perform routine checks to detect any change in the pressure of your eye. This test can help determine the intra-ocular pressure of your eye, indicating whether you are at risk of glaucoma.
It is important to conduct a test to detect the presence of glaucoma. Generally, warning signs are an indication there is already a problem. Early detection is important in order to set-up a management plan. If high-pressure is noted during your examination, Ian may recommend further testing. A referral to an ophthalmologist may also be required.
