The Glaucoma Division provides expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of primary, secondary and complicated glaucoma problems in patients of all ages. Related anterior segment disorders, including cataract, are also treated medically or surgically. Modern diagnostic tests include automated visual field testing, retinal nerve fiber layer photography, stereoscopic disc photography and computerized optic disc analysis. Current medical and surgical management includes new topical medications; argon, N-YAG and pulsed-dye laser therapy; glaucoma filtration and seton surgical procedures; and combined surgery for glaucoma and cataract. Comprehensive consultations as well as extended follow-up care of complicated glaucoma problems are provided.
