Glaucoma is a set of disorders that can deteriorate the optic nerve, which has the important job of sending visual information to the brain. If not treated early enough, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss. This condition is almost always caused by elevated eye pressure from built-up fluid. Data shows that close to two million Americans have glaucoma, many of whom don't even know it. Though science hasn't developed a cure for the disease, it may be controlled via early diagnosis and the best therapies. At The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, we have state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies and are highly trained in the best glaucoma management methods. If you are 40 years old or over, reach out to our Bloomington, IN facility and schedule your exam with R. Daniel Grossman, M.D. or a member of his team to get a head start on managing your ocular health.
The many types of glaucoma often have no symptoms at all initially. Be that as it may, each version may also cause one or two symptoms that feel insignificant or severe. When glaucoma becomes more advanced, patients may notice problems, like worsened peripheral vision, dimmed vision, eye fatigue, and eye redness. As glaucoma advances, symptoms often start to include halos, tunnel vision, nausea, and eye pain. Since glaucoma doesn't generally cause any symptoms until its advanced stages, scheduling frequent comprehensive eye exams are crucial to slow or delay vision loss.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
