The UPMC Vision Institute offers a team of ophthalmologists specialized in the care of patients diagnosed with glaucoma. We not only use traditional medical therapies and surgical techniques, but also offer newer, less invasive approaches such as AIT and canaloplasty.
Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. Early treatment, however, can often prevent vision loss. Unfortunately, most people do not show symptoms until significant damage to the eye has already occurred.
The best defense against glaucoma is to play an active role in your eye health. Know the risk factors and get a regular eye exam.
Take an active role in your eye health. Talk to your ophthalmologist about your risk factors and learn how often you should have an eye exam.
