Glaucoma is a disease in which there is damage to the optic nerve, usually resulting from chronically high pressures inside the eye. The optic nerve receives the visual image from the retina and sends the image to the brain. The brain interprets this image as sight.  Some patients have glaucoma, even though their pressure is "normal." These patients have �low tension glaucoma.� Their optic nerves have an increased susceptibility to damage and need to have their eye pressure lower than normal to prevent progression of damage. If you are seeking glaucoma treatments in Connecticut call us today! 203.924.8800

We provide comprehensive eye care to patients of all ages. Our services include not only laser vision correction and small-incision cataract surgery but also treatments for a range of conditions such as glaucoma, the diabetic eye, dry eye and macular degeneration.

Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining your eyes' health by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. Call us to schedule a regular eye exam. 203.924.8800
