Glaucoma Center of Excellence

The Glaucoma Center offers comprehensive glaucoma care and second opinion consultations for all forms of glaucoma. We often provide evaluations of diagnosis or treatment options to patients when these are requested by their eye physicians or when patients desire our opinion themselves.

We care for infants and children, adults, and all forms of glaucoma, whether primary or related to complex eye problems. Medical treatment, laser therapies, and surgical procedures for glaucoma are available.

The Glaucoma Center of Excellence is staffed by 8 experienced experts whose published studies of glaucoma and its care have been recognized as the most quoted opinions among eye doctors in the last 30 years.

Our Center specialists are studying new methods to improve glaucoma care, including stem cell research, gene therapy, preventive programs for glaucoma worldwide, improved diagnostic imaging, and methods to make glaucoma surgery safer. For patients who qualify for these investigational approaches, research participation can be offered.
