Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness. Sometimes called the silent thief of sight, glaucoma can damage your vision so gradually you may not notice any loss of vision until the disease is at an advanced stage. The most common type of glaucoma, primary open-angle glaucoma, has no noticeable signs or symptoms except gradual vision loss.

Early diagnosis and treatment is the key to minimize or prevent optic nerve damage and limit glaucoma-related vision loss. At Columbia Crest Eye Care, we take special attention and use the latest in technology to monitor for glaucoma.  It is important to get your eyes examined regularly, even if you feel your vision is doing well.  An eye exam is not only about getting glasses, but is about monitoring the overall health of your eyes as well.

Our newest instrument for monitoring for glaucoma and other retinal problems is the Cirrus HD-OCT from Carl Zeiss.  This machine is revolutionizing retinal care and allowing us to see much more detail of the retina than ever before.  It better enables us to help keeping your seeing well your entire life.MACULA_normal_eye_oct_small
