Many types of glaucoma exist, but our team can offer you the care you need. Visit one of our locations for exceptional eye care and glaucoma management from our local glaucoma eye specialist, Dr. Julie A. Carter.

Dr. Carter is a board-certified ophthalmologist with fellowship training in the specialty of Glaucoma, who completed her ophthalmology residency at the University of South Florida, serving as Chief Resident. She completed an additional year of fellowship training in the specialty of glaucoma at the University of South Florida.

What Is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can cause vision loss and blindness. It occurs when there is an increase in the fluid pressure within the eye, which can damage the optic nerve in the back of your eye. 

You may not notice the signs of glaucoma and often the only way to find out if you have this condition is by getting regular comprehensive dilated eye exams.

The most common type is open-angle glaucoma, but we treat patients with angle-closure glaucoma and normal-tension glaucoma as well.

Know if You’re at Risk

While anyone can develop glaucoma, some people are at a higher risk. Some of these risk factors include:

  • Age
  • Certain medical conditions
  • Family history
  • Previous eye injury
  • Extreme nearsightedness or farsightedness

Treating Glaucoma

At Center For Sight, our medical team stays up to date with the latest technology and treatments to deliver you the eye care you need. We offer several treatments for glaucoma, including:

Medications

A variety of eye drops and oral medications exist to control glaucoma—your doctor can recommend different medications based on your needs.

SLT uses short energy pulses to reduce intraocular pressure for patients with open-angle glaucoma.

Minimally-invasive glaucoma laser surgery involves placing a stent to help bypass normal fluid drainage, lowering eye pressure.

Trabeculectomy is a type of glaucoma surgery used to create a new pathway for fluid to drain inside of the eye.

Tube implants are silicone tubes inserted into the eye to assist in fluid drainage to keep eye pressure down.

Catch Glaucoma Early

Don’t let glaucoma steal your sight. Get the diagnosis and treatment you need so our team can help preserve and protect your vision. 

Book your next eye exam today so we have the opportunity to detect glaucoma before it worsens.
