The reason why ophthalmologists go on and on about having regular eye exams is so glaucoma can be detected at an early stage.
The earlier it is detected, the sooner treatment can start and given the glaucoma isn’t as advanced, the treatment needed won’t be as invasive.
But let’s say a patient hasn’t had a regular eye exam and now they’re diagnosed with Chronic Open Angle Glaucoma?
So this could be treated with eye drops, laser surgery and the innovative MIGS which stands for Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery.
