Glaucoma

50% of Australians with glaucoma are undiagnosed. Are you one among them?

A glaucoma check is not as simple as just checking your eye pressure! While most glaucoma cases are associated with elevated eye pressure, progressive nerve damage of glaucoma can happen in patients even without an increase in eye pressure. All our optometrists have access to an OCT (optical coherence tomography) machine, stereoscopic retinal imaging, gonioscopy, applanation tonometry, and central corneal thickness measurements to determine whether or not you have glaucoma — even before you manifest any symptoms.

Signs and Symptoms You May Have Glaucoma Include…

Blurry vision or red eyes

Diabetes

Family members with glaucoma

Why Should You Be Concerned?

01

People are slowly becoming blind before they know it.

02

Glaucoma has no symptoms in its early stages, robbing you of your peripheral vision in a gradual and painless way.

03

A person who gets glaucoma can still, at the beginning, see clearly, while areas outside the central concentrated spot slowly disappear.

04

Once you notice the symptoms, you may have already lost your side vision and it’s too late for treatment. Early detection is key.
