New Glaucoma Test

Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve that can cause blindness if left untreated. There are no symptoms in the early stages of the disease. We have a glaucoma clinic quarterly using an optical coherence tomographer (OCT), which measures retinal nerve fiber layer thickness. In glaucoma the nerve fiber layer thins before a visual defect occurs.  So we can now diagnose glaucoma earlier than before and thereby start treatment earlier to help prevent blindness. For more information go to   If you have been told you are a glaucoma suspect or have glaucoma,  you should call the office at (760) 942-3937 and ask for an appointment.
