Glaucoma

While many ophthalmologists and perhaps other eye care professionals can support glaucoma sufferers, receiving advanced or complex treatments (especially surgery) from a glaucoma specialist could provide a more advantageous outcome.

 In many instances many aspects of your eye care may be managed by both an optometrist and an ophthalmologists working together.

The glaucoma specialist at Dublin Ophthalmic provides the full-spectrum of care—ranging from medical therapy and traditional surgery and minimally invasive glaucoma surgeries (MIGS)—for patients of all ages. He also provides second-opinion consultations to ensure that you have the correct diagnosis and/or treatment plan in a team approach with your optician and general practitioner.  

 Regular integrated testing is required to correlate the form and function of the eye/s involved to determine that intervention is appropriate and effective over the short and long term. The many different types and severities of glaucoma and its spectrum would never be treated the same way.

Treatments must be individualised according to the lifestyle and requirements of the person who might be diagnosed as having glaucoma.  Regular integrated testing is required to correlate the form and function of the eye/s involved to determine that intervention is appropriate and effective over the short and long term.
