As part of the services offered by our glaucoma doctor 78213 Dr. Rakich provides eye testing for glaucoma and many other dangerous eye problems. This all happens during the course of a comprehensive eye exam. During this exam Dr. Rakich will test your eyes for any refraction problems including nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. She will also put medicated dilation drops in your eyes so that your eyes can be closely examined with an ophthalmoscope. She will also measure your eyes for their eye pressure, which can be a good indicator of the presence of glaucoma. If eye pressure is high, Dr. Rakich will go on to perform other eye tests to see if glaucoma is indeed present. Should glaucoma be definitively detected she will be able to help you monitor the condition and treat it with eye drops that will help control ocular pressure, and use precise glaucoma tracking methods at periodic eye exams. If surgical treatment for glaucoma is deemed necessary, Dr. Rakich will be able to refer you to an expert ophthalmologist who will be able to perform laser glaucoma surgery. It is always important to be periodically screened for eye diseases; for people with diabetes or a family history of glaucoma, glaucoma screening is even more important.
