Often called the “silent thief of sight”, glaucoma is an eye disease that many individuals do not know they have until their vision decreases in clarity. If untreated, it can result in serious vision loss and blindness. Fortunately, the eye doctors and ophthalmologists at New England Eye Center have a long-standing history of diagnosing glaucoma symptoms before any serious damage is done. There are many types of glaucoma, as well as many treatment options available to our patients.

Our doctors take the time to understand and identify your individual needs based on the condition of your eyes, offering the best treatment available specific to your needs. The best defense against glaucoma is to schedule regular eye exams with an optometrist, who will identify any possible warning signs of the disease. Learn more about glaucoma prevention, symptoms, and treatment with the eye care staff at New England Eye Center.
