Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a common eye condition and is defined as a type of damage to the optic nerve, is related to eye pressure, and can eventually cause vision loss. Therapy to reduce Intra-Ocular Pressure (IOP) will reduce the risk of such vision loss, but cannot improve vision already reduced from glaucoma. Many types of glaucoma exist; the best therapy and management depends on the particular patient and the type and stage of glaucoma. At InSight Vision Group, like the Mayo Clinic, we utilize a doctor team approach for glaucoma management. This enhances the coordination of patient’s care needs among doctors within our practice, and the coordination of the care plan with doctors outside of our practice.
