that over 2.2 million Americans have glaucoma but only half of those know they have it. "A comprehensive eye exam and detecting glaucoma early is key in preventing permanent vision loss," say Dr. Topical eye medications (eye drops) or oral medications (pills) can be very effective at controlling intraocular pressure to prevent eye damage for many patients. However, some patients may require surgery to reduce their intraocular pressure to a safe level by improving the outflow or drainage of fluids. After surgery, a patients dependency on expensive eye drops to control glaucoma is either reduced significantly or even eliminated. Others may need to continue using eye drops post glaucoma surgery.The SLT ProcedureThe selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) procedure increases outflow of internal eye fluid. The laser, performed by an ophthalmologist, is used to create tiny holes in the filtration angle of the eye, where the cornea and iris meet. The SLT creates minimal heat damage to adjacent tissue, which generally means the procedure can be repeated safely. Recent Reebok Freestyle Hi Blue

studies indicate and Dr. Shofner agrees that this laser procedure may be equally as effective as glaucoma eye drops for lowering internal eye pressure.Shunts and StentsOther options for glaucoma treatments include shunts and stents, which are small devices that are surgically inserted into the eye during a trabeculectomy to increase outflow of intraocular fluid and reduce high eye pressure. The iStent Trabecular Micro Bypass (iStent) is made of surgical grade titanium and is safely implanted in the internal eye area to re establish a normal flow of fluids within the eye. Stents used in the medical industry are tubes inserted into the human body to improve blood flow or provide easy access for medications or even surgery. The iStent creates a new opening, which eliminates any blockage that hinders the eyes natural fluid outflow. As with the SLT procedure, the iStent may be a permanent way to reduce or even eliminate a glaucoma patients reliance on medication.Glaucoma treatments (laser and non laser) are designed to decrease the production of intraocular fluid or increase the outflow (drainage) of this same fluid. People that are high risk for developing glaucoma due to elevated intraocular pressure, family history, ethnic background, age or optic nerve appearance should consult with a qualified eye doctor or ophthalmologist to determine the frequency of their eye exams.About Shofner Vision CenterDr. Stewart Shofner of Shofner Vision Center located in the heart of downtown Nashville, TN, specializes in affordable LASIK and cataract vision correction surgery and treats ocular diseases.

first to provide patients with a procedure known as Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) to successfully treat glaucoma, reducing or eliminating their dependency of expensive eye drops.Nashville, TN (PRWEB) July 31, 2014Dr. Stewart Shofner of Shofner Vision Center in Nashville, TN was one of the first surgeons in the United States to successfully treat glaucoma by performing eye surgery using the iStent, the smallest medical device ever approved by the FDA. Dr. Shofner is also one of the first surgeons to recognize the benefits of using a procedure known as Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) to successfully treat patients with glaucoma. Dr. It is a complicated disease in which damage to the optic nerve leads to progressive, irreversible vision loss. According to the World Health Organization, glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness. Prevent Blindness America reported it is estimated Saucony Shadow Los Angeles
