Why come to Florida Eye for glaucoma treatment?
In any given year, physicians at Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute perform numerous glaucoma-related eye exams and procedures. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in America, and the doctors and staff at Florida Eye understand the importance of annual eye exams, especially for those at risk of the disease. Our doctors will help you determine the best course of glaucoma treatment for your particular condition. Should you be on medication or are you a candidate for Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), a surgery for glaucoma? We will help you make that decision.

Patient education, and involving those he treats in their own health care decisions is very important to him.
