How is Glaucoma Diagnosed?

 

The Glaucoma Consultation

What can I expect at my glaucoma consultation visit?

A glaucoma evaluation requires multiple pieces of information. Your glaucoma team will check your vision and IOP and other various features of the eye. Imaging in the form of a very brief picture test often aids your glaucoma specialist in evaluating your optic nerve. Your glaucoma specialist will sit down with you, evaluate your eye and IOP and discuss the findings.

I’ve had my IOP checked at my regular eye doctor’s office. Do I need my IOP checked again?

It is important that your glaucoma specialist do an independent evaluation of your eye and your IOP.

What is the purpose of the visual field test?

The visual field test is a simple office test that evaluates your peripheral vision. This aids your glaucoma specialist in assessing the severity of your glaucoma.

I have great peripheral vision, why do I need to take this test?

No matter how great you think your peripheral vision is, you may still have glaucoma damage which can only be detected by visual field testing.
