Working Side-by-Side Against Glaucoma  

Glaucoma testing is included in every routine eye exam at Foothill Optometric. We’ll work hard to ensure this disease is caught in the earliest possible stage using advanced diagnostic technology. 

Glaucoma is called “the silent thief of sight” because it develops slowly, and often presents with no warning symptoms. This condition is a group of eye diseases that cause progressive damage to your optic nerve, and it is the leading cause of blindness in patients over 60

Although this disease usually affects older adults, there have been occurrences of glaucoma in young adults.  

Early detection and swift management of glaucoma can save your vision, so contact us today to book your next eye exam! 

Keep an Eye on Your Vision Health  

Your eye is an intricate machine with many little jobs, and one of those jobs is producing aqueous humor. The aqueous flows in and out of the eye through the drainage angle, keeping pressure in the eye (called intraocular pressure or IOP) stable.

Increased intraocular pressure can result in damage to the optic nerve, causing vision loss.

The most common types of glaucoma are:

Acute closed-angle glaucoma is considered an eye emergency requiring immediate treatment from a medical professional to prevent severe complications.

Contact Foothill Optometric if you experience these symptoms:

  • Sudden and severe headache
  • Eye pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Blurred vision
  • “Halos” around lights
  • Redness in the eyes

If it is outside our office hours, proceed to the nearest emergency room or urgent care center.
