Glaucoma is a much more complex disease than many people understand.
As a board-certified ophthalmologist, Dr. Carter is uniquely experienced in the area of glaucoma diagnosis and treatment. Carter Eye Center has helped thousands of Dallas residents fight glaucoma successfully with medically advanced treatment options.
During your examination, Dr. Carter will measure your unique eye pressure and the condition of the optic nerve. If signs of glaucoma exist, more tests will be conducted, and Dr. Carter will create a customized glaucoma treatment plan.
The goal of glaucoma treatment at Carter Eye Center is preservation of your current level of vision and prevention of further vision loss. Treatment approaches can vary, depending on the type of glaucoma diagnosed, the degree to which the disease has progressed, underlying risk factors and other considerations. Generally, prescription medications (eye-drops and oral medications), laser procedures and operative procedures are all utilized to attempt to preserve vision.
Because glaucoma is such an elusive disease with life-altering implications, early detection and treatment are important. Carter Eye Center is proud to offer comprehensive glaucoma diagnosis and treatment programs to the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex.
