Glaucoma Service

Several ethnic groups in the Brooklyn community suffer a high incidence of various forms of glaucoma. The University Ophthalmic Consultant's (UOC) Glaucoma Service offers state-of-the-art technology to detect glaucoma-related diseases, and its dedicated, culturally sensitive physicians offer a wide range of treatment modalities. Glaucoma management and community screenings are important aspects of our service.

Extensive patient evaluation is required for the effective treatment and management of glaucoma. A full range of highly advanced medical tests are available to patients through UOC's Ocular Imaging Service.

Management of high-risk glaucoma is among our service's specialties. Potential treatments include filtering surgery with antifibrotics, placement of aqueous drainage shunts,  various combined procedures and minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS). Many treatments are performed in collaboration with the UOC Cornea and Retina Service.

The Glaucoma Service also offers a multidisciplinary approach to anterior segment reconstruction. Services are available by appointment, and urgent consultations are always available.
