GLAUCOMA SERVICES


Glaucoma is the Second-leading cause of avoidable blindness in the world today. Although it affects people of all ages, it is more common among individuals who are 50 years and older. The open angle forms are symptomless until serious visual impairment occurs and hence glaucoma is known as the “sneak thief of sight” and can progress undetected for years. With early diagnosis through appropriate medical eye exams, vision loss can be prevented. PVRI’s Glaucoma Services include nationally recognized experts who are adept at providing personalized care to their patients.

We offer free diagnosis of Glaucoma every second Thursday of the month.
