Glaucoma is known as the silent thief of sight, but when it is properly diagnosed, it can be controlled.

What glaucoma treatments are available?
Advanced Eye Care Options
If you are diagnosed with open-angle glaucoma, we typically prescribe non-surgical treatment including eye drops. Applied one or two times per day, these eye drops slow down the production of aqueous fluid and reduce the intraocular pressure associated with glaucoma.
Drs. Jeffrey A. Sheridan and Craig D. Fishman may recommend this minimally invasive treatment option if eye drops do not meet your needs. Depending on your condition, we may perform argon laser trabeculoplasty (ALT), selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), or peripheral iridotomy.
If neither eye drops nor laser treatment are effective in controlling your glaucoma, our doctors may recommend more complex but highly effective surgical treatment. At Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists, we offer both stents and trabeculectomy.
