Did you know that glaucoma is one of the leading causes of total vision loss in adults today? Glaucoma refers to not one, but a few related conditions that have to do with an abnormal increase in pressure on the optic nerve. Unfortunately, the form that comes up most often develops in such a gradual manner that most patients are unaware that there is a problem until their vision is already seriously affected. That is why it is of the utmost important to visit our experts here at Wicker Park Eye Center for eye exams on a regular basis, especially as you get older and your risk of developing glaucoma increases. If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, there is not better place to turn to than the Wicker Park Eye Center, where our glaucoma surgery in Wicker Park is renowned as the best in the area. Some examples of glaucoma surgeries that we provide here at our practice include: canaloplasty, which works to enhance and restore your eye’s natural drainage system in order to take down the pressure on your optic nerve, laser trabeculoplasty, which uses a laser to open up the trabecular meshwork and allow for better drainage, laser peripheral iridotomy, which also works to uncover the meshwork and enhance drainage, trabulectomy, which involves creating a partial thickness flap in the scleral wall of the eye in order to open up the meshwork, and more. The experts here at the Wicker Park Eye Center will work with you to determine which glaucoma surgery in Wicker Park is best suited for your individual needs and which will be the most effective for you.
