Eye Diseases Overview


Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve. Glaucoma is caused by the drainage passage inside the eye being mechanically blocked or not functioning correctly. This causes a buildup of clear fluid called aqueous humor which subsequently causes a rise in intraocular pressure. This pressure can damage the optic nerve over time and cause a loss of peripheral vision and eventually central vision. Even when the intraocular pressure is not above average, it may still be high enough to cause optic nerve damage. The average intraocular pressure in adults is 15 mmHg, but normal intraocular pressure is different for each individual. The higher the intraocular pressure, the more likely is the possibility of progressive glaucoma damage.

Eye Center of Texas is led by a team of experienced ophthalmologists and optometrists who provide a full spectrum of services, from advanced diagnosis to treatment and surgery.  In addition to performing LASIK and cataract surgery, the doctors treat diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachments, retinal holes and tears, macular degeneration, retinal membranes, infections, injuries, hereditary conditions and optic nerve diseases.
