Our team is here to diagnose, treat, and manage your care to help you protect your vision for as long as possible.

Our staff provides comprehensive glaucoma to our patients in the greater Tupelo area and can effectively diagnose, treat, and manage this condition.
Glaucoma is typically caused by increased pressure on the eyes which gets worse as time goes on. Common symptoms include blurred vision, seeing halos around lights, redness in the eye, the appearance of a hazy eye, and eye pain. In the earliest stages of glaucoma, there may not be any noticeable symptom, which makes regular eye care, especially after the age of 40, critical.
The greatest risk factor for developing glaucoma is hereditary. If you have a family history of this eye condition, be sure to maintain regular vision care as you age. Early detection can make a lot of difference in the level of eyesight that you can maintain. The earlier that glaucoma is detected and treated the less likely you will be to develop significant loss of vision.
Our regular eye exams include a test to detect glaucoma. And with an early diagnosis, our treatment can be even more effective. If you already have this condition, we can also help you to effectively manage your glaucoma. Our staff is dedicated to providing compassionate and effective care to our patients in the Tupelo area.
