Can you remember the last time you had a comprehensive eye exam? Eye exams are very important to have on a yearly basis because they will allow our eye doctor to detect if there are any serious eye diseases or disorders developing in your eyes. Whether you need glaucoma testing or treatment, a comprehensive eye exam, or other eye care in St. Louis, you will want to come and see us at Glaucoma Consultants of St. Louis.
At our eye care practice, we are very happy to have two expert eye doctors available to help our patients. Our doctors are Dr. Paul M. Tesser, our ophthalmologist, and Dr. Jeremy A. Beatty, our optometrist. When you come to our eye care practice for a comprehensive eye exam, our eye doctor will be able to thoroughly examine your eyes and perform eye disease testing. This type of screening will definitely show if you are experiencing any types of problems from glaucoma. Glaucoma is a serious disease which can go on to cause blindness if left untreated. However, if detected in the early stages, glaucoma can be easily kept at bay – often simply through the use of self-administered eye drops. If you need state-of-the-art eye care in St. Louis in the form of eye testing, or to provide management of glaucoma or another eye disease, you will be able to receive the eye care that you need at our vision practice.
When it comes to glaucoma, the old adage is definitely true that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If left to go undetected and untreated, glaucoma can go on to cause serious vision problems. Unfortunately, most of the effects of glaucoma cannot be reversed. So when it comes to keeping your eyes healthy, prevention is definitely the key. However, if it is determined that the glaucoma has advanced, patients are able to receive advanced surgical care from our ophthalmologist. At our practice we are able to utilize the latest and most advanced computerized tests to help our doctors diagnose glaucoma in our patients. When treatment with eye drops is not sufficient, our ophthalmologist will be able to provide laser surgery treatment to keep the eye disease from advancing. Laser treatment is very precise and the eye will heal quickly from the procedure. For the more advanced cases of glaucoma, there are other surgical options available from our eye doctor.
