Information About Glaucoma Services

Glaucoma is an often undetected condition that causes an intense buildup of pressure within the eye. If left untreated, this pressure can lead to partial or even total blindness. At Kirk Eye Center, our team is trained to identify the signs of glaucoma before it can cause any damage. Additionally, we can perform laser glaucoma treatment, MIGS, ECP, and other procedures to ensure glaucoma does not affect your optical health. Contact our office in River Forest, IL today to schedule your appointment with one of our optometrists or ophthalmologists.

Glaucoma damages the optic nerve as the result of fluid buildup from internal eye pressure and can cause total blindness if not properly treated.

If eye drops have not worked to lower your intraocular pressure, you may be a candidate for one of our cutting-edge glaucoma laser treatments.

Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) encompasses a range of personalized procedures to lower intraocular pressure and reduce eye nerve damage.

Endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP) utilizes laser energy to reduce fluid production in the eye, helping to lower a patient's intraocular pressure.

Trabeculectomy is a surgery that creates a small hole in the eye wall to allow for fluid drainage, which helps to lower intraocular pressure.
