FAQ

Can I diagnose myself with glaucoma?

No. Glaucoma is the silent thief of site. It is a disease process that often takes many years to cause noticeable damage. Once that damage is done, however, it is permanent. Glaucoma is most commonly caused by high eye pressure. There is no way to measure pressure without equipment found in an eye doctors office. It is not related to blood pressure and the average human cannot simply touch the eye and tell if pressure is elevated to an unhealthy level. If you are worried about having glaucoma, please schedule an appointment with your eye doctor immediately.

Are drops the only solution for glaucoma?

There are many ways to treat glaucoma. There are non-invasive laser procedures, surgical implants, and medications administered through drops or by mouth. Not every patient is a candidate for all of these options. A visit to Dr. Foreman or another glaucoma specialist will determine what your best treatment options are.

People in my family have cataracts, should I be worried?

Cataracts are a normal aging change of humans, not a hereditary disease from your family. Eventually, every persons lens will become cloudy. This is easily treated by an outpatient surgery to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a new, clear one. This new implant is chosen based on your need for correction in glasses. After the surgery, you will most likely not need anything but reading glasses. There are different topics to discuss with this, but overall, cataract removal is a mild experience for most people. Schedule a visit with your local optometrist/ophthalmologist to learn more.
