Here at Rockport Eye Associates, glaucoma in Portland Texas is one of the most serious issues we treat. Not many people know that glaucoma is not actually just one condition—in fact, it is a term that refers to a few related conditions connected by an increased pressure on and damage to the optic nerve. It can cause serious vision loss and have varying rates of progression and development. Unfortunately, the most common form of glaucoma develops very slowly. This slow kind of development can make it difficult for people to even notice that they have it in the very early stages. As a result, some people do not seek treatment until the disease has already done serious damage. In order to avoid this, it is important to come into Rockport Eye Associates to get a screening for glaucoma in Portland Texas as part of your comprehensive eye exam on a regular basis. Getting these screenings for glaucoma early increases the chances of earlier detection and therefore better vision protection and overall treatment. If you are over the age of about sixty years old, and/or have a family history of the condition, it is especially important that you come in for screenings for glaucoma in Portland Texas as often as possible.
