Did you know glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness for adults 60 years and older but can still occur at any age? Many forms of glaucoma have no warning signs and the effect can be so gradual that you may not notice a change in vision until the condition is in its later stages. Here at Yukon Eyecare we have the most current imagining technology that can detect the first stages of glaucoma to help slow or prevent permanent vision loss.
Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty or SLT, is a form of light therapy that is used to lower intraocular pressure in glaucoma. It is used when eye drop medications are not lowering the eye pressure enough or are causing significant side effects. It can also be used as initial treatment in glaucoma.
