For patients with open angle glaucoma, there are extremely tiny, dissolvable implants that can be placed into your eye to continually release medication that can reduce your elevated eye pressure. There are FDA-approved options that can be an alternative to daily eye drops. In fact, one of these types of implants can help lower your eye pressure for up to 15 weeks.
Side effects can include eye redness, light sensitivity, dry eye, feeling of a foreign object in the eye, pain, blood spot on the eye, blurry vision and other symptoms. If you experience these symptoms or any other vision changes, contact your doctor.
Early detection of glaucoma and prompt treatment is important to prevent permanent vision loss. To learn more about the glaucoma treatments in Billings, contact us to schedule an appointment. Our team will assess your eye health and explain in detail how this treatment option works.
