Glaucoma

How do we handle Glaucoma treatment?

A patient should demand the very best diagnostic technology but also the best and latest treatment modalities available to deal with glaucoma.

Dr. Fier was the first in the Treasure Coast to use automated technology to accurately test peripheral vision and utilized diagnostic equipment and painlessly evaluate nerve tissue damage in the eye from Glaucoma.

Many patients can be treated with eye drops, however others require laser or surgical procedures. Dr. Fier was also the first to use SLT laser for this purpose. He was the first to use ECP laser, and modified surgical techniques and new technology shunts for treatment.

Fier Eye Care is highly experienced and has kept pace with the most advanced treatments while being on the crest of new knowledge. We are on the leading edge of the best treatments available for you and your precious vision.

What is a Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is the “sneak thief of vision” because it can painlessly rob you of your sight permanently unless detected and treated in a timely manner. It is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States because vision loss is so gradual.

Glaucoma is not just one eye disease, but a group of eye conditions resulting in optic nerve damage, which may cause loss of vision. Abnormally high pressure inside your eye (intraocular pressure) usually, but not always, causes this damage.
