Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes damage to the optic nerve of the eyes. There is an association between glaucoma and an increase in the internal eye pressure. The increased eye pressure inhibits and reduces the circulation throughout the eye causing nerve damage. Our efforts are directed toward lowering the eye pressure to improve the circulation throughout the eye. There are two types of glaucoma: open angle and closed angle glaucoma. At Long Island Vision Experts/Hatsis Laser Vision our doctors are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of both types of glaucoma. They evaluate and monitor their glaucoma patients with the latest diagnostic methods available. Our patients are treated with all FDA approved eye drops, medications and when appropriate lasers. Procedures such as laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI), laser iridoplasty or selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) are routinely performed at Long Island Vision Experts/Hatsis Laser Vision.
