Glaucoma

Glaucoma

What is glaucoma, and what’s the difference between glaucoma and cataracts? Dr. Barry Schechter, an ophthalmologist with the Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute, answers those questions, and he also explains the symptoms and causes of glaucoma. Many people don’t even realize they have glaucoma and that they are gradually losing their sight until the condition is advanced. Age, race and genetic predisposition will all play a role on being at risk for having this disease. Dr. Schechter presents ways glaucoma is diagnosed and treated, with multiple options available that can even treat more than one eye malignancy at the same time.
