Glaucoma in Patients with Diabetes Mellitus
Combined Modality Treatment of Glaucoma in Patients with Diabetes Mellitus
- Patients with diabetes mellitus – both insulin and non-insulin dependent – have a higher risk of glaucoma. This form of glaucoma is particularly aggressive and difficult to treat. Blindness and surgical complications are very frequent in these patients.
- The Glaucoma Center offers aggressive management for this disease. Therapy is coordinated with the Retina Service so as to treat both retinal disease and glaucoma simultaneously. Frequently, examinations are scheduled together to limit your traveling and inconvenience.
- The Glaucoma Center stresses the need for aggressive evaluation and management of glaucoma in patients with diabetes mellitus. Early intervention with careful monitoring is essential for a favorable prognosis.
