Protect Your Vision from Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease that can cause blindness. It’s easy to miss the early symptoms, so you might not know anything is wrong until it is too late to stop the damage.

Eye exams can detect glaucoma, and early treatment can stop harm to your eyes and protect your vision.

Here’s how Joseph Gowen O.D. & Associates can help:

We check your eyes for glaucoma during a dilated eye exam.

We can prescribe eye drops to treat glaucoma at its early stages.

Advanced glaucoma can require laser treatment or surgery.

There’s no way to prevent glaucoma, so it is important to check for it regularly.

Stop glaucoma in its tracks with regular eye exams and protect your eye health and vision. Same-day eye appointments are available.

Find Melanomas Fast

Melanoma is a type of cancer that can grow in your eyes. Like glaucoma, eye melanoma doesn’t usually have early symptoms, so you might not realize there is anything wrong until your eyes are permanently damaged.

Eye health exams can spot melanoma early so we can treat it before your eyes are hurt.

Joseph Gowen O.D. & Associates can help:

We check for melanoma during your regular dilated eye exam.

If we find a small melanoma, we can watch it closely to see if it grows.

Larger or growing melanomas are usually treated with radiation or surgery

Treatment for larger eye melanomas can cause some vision loss.

Find melanomas fast to save your vision and preserve your eye health.
