Our Approach to Treating

Glaucoma in Adults

Glaucoma, a progressive and degenerative disease of the optic nerve—which connects the eye to the brain—can lead to irreversible vision loss if left untreated. Most people with glaucoma don't experience any symptoms, so regular eye exams are important. 

NYU Langone’s eye specialists are committed to helping you preserve your eye health and adapt to changes in your vision as you age. Our staff includes some of the nation’s top ophthalmologists, who are experienced in using the latest medical and surgical approaches to manage glaucoma.

Treatment for Glaucoma in Adults

Depending on the degree of glaucoma, our doctors may use medications, laser therapy, and surgery to manage the condition.
