Glaucoma Care

Protect & Maintain Your Vision with Leading-Edge Care from Doctors with Years of Experience Treating Glaucoma

At Eye Care Professionals, we have developed a practice emphasis in the field of glaucoma care, medical management, laser glaucoma treatment, and Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery. Dr. Mills was the first surgeon in Northern Nevada to implant the i-Stent aqueous bypass shunt. Moreover, he was the first to perform the OMNI procedure for Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) as well. These innovations are part of a long-standing commitment to providing excellent solutions for our glaucoma patients.

What is Glaucoma?

Glaucoma care in Reno, NV.

Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the U.S., accounting for approximately 12% of new cases of blindness each year. This eye disease affects about 3% of all Americans over the age of 65, and over half of those with glaucoma don’t know they have it. Glaucoma develops gradually, usually over several years, causing no pain and presenting only subtle symptoms that worsen over time. These symptoms include blurred vision, peripheral (side) vision loss, and inability to adjust your eyes to darkened rooms.

Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, which delivers images to the brain. The pressure from the aqueous inside the eye is exerted on the optic nerve. This pressure, over time, harms the optic nerve in susceptible patients

Although glaucoma can damage your eyesight, early diagnosis, and comprehensive glaucoma treatment help minimize vision loss and maintain your vision. Early detection, intervention, and proper glaucoma medical management, are key factors in successful treatment outcomes.

Trust Complete, High-Tech Glaucoma Care from Reno’s Area Leaders

At Eye Care Professionals, our eye doctors use today’s most advanced diagnostics to detect glaucoma at its earliest stages. If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, we will recommend treatment based on your individual needs.

Glaucoma treatment in Reno, NV.

Medical management – A variety of prescription eye drops can help reduce intraocular pressure. 

Endocyclophotocoagulation (ECP) – We can use light energy to alter the eye’s fluid production rate. Dr. Mills introduced endocyclophotocoagulation in Reno.

Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) – Using laser energy, we modify the eye’s draining apparatus to increase fluid outflow. We were among the first to perform the selective laser trabeculoplasty procedure in Reno.

Transciliary Filtration (TCF) – We use a plasma blade to create a micropore to drain fluid. We introduced this short, high-tech procedure to Reno.

Micro-Invasive Glaucoma Surgery (MIGS) – Dr. Mills was the first surgeon in Northern Nevada to perform both the iStent as well as OMNI surgical procedures for glaucoma treatment. We specialize in these and other forms of less invasive glaucoma surgical interventions. In some select cases, these procedures may result in a reduction or removal of daily eye drops being required.
