Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye. That extra fluid increases the pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve.
The physicians at EyeHealth Northwest are committed to providing expert care to patients with glaucoma. We use the most advanced, up-to-date diagnostic technologies to detect and diagnose glaucoma at its early stages. Our physicians prescribe the latest medications and perform surgical techniques to preserve vision and minimize the impact of glaucoma therapy on the patient’s lifestyle. EyeHealth Northwest fellowship-trained glaucoma specialists, J. Kevin McKinney, MD and Charles Weber, MD practicing in our Clackamas County offices and Dr. Robert McGlynn practicing in our East Portland offices are available for consultation, second opinions, and on-going care.
