Make Us Your Cincinnati Eye Doctor
Glaucoma is the generalized name for a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve of the eye, preventing the eye from sending accurate visual information to the brain. Depending on the severity of the disease, treatment for glaucoma can involve the use of medications, conventional (bladed) surgery, laser surgery or a combination of these treatments. Because glaucoma is often painless, people may become careless about strict use of medications and sticking to treatments.

Q&A with Dr. K
Dr. Kenkel Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Why do I need routine eye exams for glaucoma if I don’t have it?
Usually when people are in the early stages of glaucoma they start to lose their peripheral vision but it’s not noticed by the person because when one eye loses peripheral vision, the other eye (which does not have glaucoma) will compensate for this, and the person doesn’t even feel or see that they are missing any peripheral vision.
Exactly for this reason, glaucoma is considered the “silent thief of sight”. People just don’t feel or notice anything until they are already past mid-stage glaucoma. Only in mid-stage glaucoma people start to notice changes. There are no symptoms until mid-stage, when they may notice they have more tunnel vision. The early stages of glaucoma can only be detected by your optometrist or ophthalmologist during an eye exams.
