What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is an eye disease that can damage the optic nerve.  Those with a family history of the disease and are over 50 years have a higher risk of developing Glaucoma.

Glaucoma can not be self diagnosed. We can test for Glaucoma at My Eye Care Centre. During the exam, the optometrist will check the following:

  • Measure your eye pressure, also known as intraocular pressure (IOP).
  • Inspect your eye’s drainage angle.
  • Examine your optic nerve for damage.
  • Test your central and peripheral (side) vision.
  • Take a picture or computer measurement of your optic nerve.
  • Measure the thickness of your cornea

What is a visual field analysis?

“A visual field test maps out what your world looks like to you. It measures the area of vision, or how wide of an area your eye can see”. In glaucoma, your visual field becomes constricted, similar to tunnel vision.
