Glaucoma is a disease of the eye in which fluid pressure causes damage to the optic nerve. It can be treated with eye drops, medications and /or laser therapy. If these measures fail to adequately control the eye pressure, then surgery can be performed at our Ambulatory Surgery Center in Sandwich, MA, on Route 130 in Heritage Park.
Surgery is performed under local anesthesia and creates a permanent new outflow channel for the fluid building up in the eye.
Early detection is important for patients with glaucoma, so contact us to schedule an appointment if you have any concerns.
I have all the faith in Dr. Kriegstein. He takes good care of me and makes me feel comfortable. I love the staff and I trust Dr. Kriegstein and I just know I am in good hands. I wouldn't see anyone else for my eyes.— Marion
