Although glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness, it is the leader in preventable blindness. McFarland Eye Care in Little Rock offers our community an eye clinic staffed with doctors who are well qualified to diagnose and treat glaucoma. Glaucoma is an eye condition where optic nerve damage occurs when the fluid pressure inside the eye increases. There are usually no noticeable symptoms and vision lost to glaucoma cannot be restored. That’s why early diagnosis and treatment are so important.
Anyone can develop glaucoma but some people are at higher risk. If you are over age 60, African-American or Hispanic or have a family history of glaucoma your chances are much greater. Most people do not notice symptoms of the disease until they begin to experience severe vision problems. Others may experience blurred or narrowed field of vision, severe pain in the eye or haloes around lights.
McFarland Eye Care in Little Rock offers cutting-edge treatments for glaucoma treatment and surgery such as SLT laser, endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP) and stents. If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, our staff is highly trained to manage and treat the disease. If you want more information about glaucoma, you can read more here.
