This year Saskatchewan Optometrists have gained the authority to treat and manage glaucoma and prescribe oral medications. We offer comprehensive eye examinations which include all the testing necessary for managing and treating glaucoma, including visual fields and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) at all of our locations.
Medical advancements have improved glaucoma treatment options providing better outcomes with fewer side effects. Glaucoma can be treated with eye drops, medication, surgery or a combination of methods. A plan for treatment and management includes careful and frequent follow-up (usually every three to six months) to ensure treatment is effective. The sooner glaucoma can be diagnosed the better the outcome.
