Condition Treated
  • Glaucoma is a serious eye disease that can result in permanent damage to your optic nerve. If left untreated, glaucoma can lead to total blindness.


If your NVISION® doctor is suspicious of glaucoma in your screening process, a referral will be made to a glaucoma specialist for baseline testing. Glaucoma therapy typically begins with eye drops, then if needed laser surgery may be performed, and if required for intraocular pressure (IOP) control, Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) may be indicated.

Common Questions About Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery
  • Glaucoma is a serious eye disease that can lead to permanent damage to your optic nerve and result in permanent blindness. Glaucoma often starts with unnoticeable blind spots in the visual periphery, then when advanced can lead to tunnel vision, and finally blindness. There is a known relationship between diabetes and open-angle glaucoma (the most common type of glaucoma). Early detection of glaucoma is vital if an eye surgeon is to successfully treat the condition, and most optometrists check for glaucoma during regular eye exams.
