Second Opinion for Surgical Intervention
Treatment for glaucoma can vary. Surgical therapy is complicated and can fail to arrest the disease. New studies are frequently presented which change the manner in which treatment is offered to the patient.
- A second opinion gives the patient a chance to answer all one's questions prior to undergoing surgery or medical treatment. Frequently, the question may be "Do I have glaucoma?" or "Do I need surgery?"
- A second opinion may afford the patient the opportunity to avoid unnecessary care or delay, and to learn of all the treatment options for this disease.
- With new medications and surgical techniques presented yearly for this disease, the options for glaucoma care increase. A second opinion provides the patient with this valuable information.
