Glaucoma Clinic

The Glaucoma Clinic has experts who treat patients with conditions that have a poor prognosis, including those who have had unsuccessful glaucoma surgery or have secondary glaucoma, advanced glaucomatous optic atrophy and patients who have vision in only one eye. Congenital and childhood glaucomas are also part of the special expertise.

Our ophthalmologists specialize in all types of glaucoma — congenital, combined mechanism, narrow angle, open angle, and normal tension.
