Additional Testing for Diagnosis and Treatment

Gonioscopy –  Dr. Hicks places a lens on the eye to evaluate the structures of the eye.  This gives him additional information to determine a diagnosis.  
Pachyemetry – Dr. Hicks or SeePort staff use an instrument that measures the thickness of the cornea.  
Inter ocular Pressure Check – Glaucoma is usually accompanied by high pressure within eye, causing tissue damage and loss of vision.   We do not have the “puff test” in our office, so do not worry about that!  

 

 

Dr. Hicks welcomes all referrals and transfers of care from physicians to SeePort Optometry.  If you would like to contact Dr. Hicks directly, please email drj@seeportoptometry.com.  

Glaucoma is a group of eye disorders leading to progressive damage to the optic nerve, and is characterized by loss of nerve tissue resulting in loss of vision. The optic nerve is a bundle of about one million individual nerve fibers and transmits the visual signals from the eye to the brain.  Please follow this link to read all about glaucoma, risk factors and definitions.
