There are many common eye diseases such as Glaucoma and Dry Eye Syndrome that we diagnose on a daily basis. These conditions may manifest with symptoms such as eye irritation or redness, or they may have no symptoms and can only be detected with examination and testing.
Glaucoma is a particularly heinous eye disease that affects your optic nerve and, if left untreated, can result in permanent vision loss. The optic nerve transmits visual information from the eye to the brain and is vital for good vision. Glaucoma is caused by long-term pressure on the eye’s optic nerve; and, if left undiagnosed and treated this high pressure in your eye can damage to the optic nerve and result in vision loss.
What makes glaucoma particularly dangerous is its asymptomatic nature. It is possible to have glaucoma for several years before it impacts your eyesight. Colorado Eye Care provides state of the art diagnostic studies for the earliest possible detection before vision loss occurs.
Also, to assure long-term Glaucoma control, Dr Jamell maintains a long-term history of glaucoma management with many of his patients.
Regular eye care goes well beyond glasses and contacts, and we pride ourselves on being available for medical conditions that often arise.
