Whether you have perfect visual acuity or suffer from refractive errors, all eye exams with Dr. Michael Vathanasaynee at Walmart Vision Center include a glaucoma test. Glaucoma is the generalized name for a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve of the eye and result in severe vision loss. Glaucoma tests are designed to test your eyes for the key symptoms of this disease, such as increased eye pressure and optic nerve damage. One type of glaucoma test performed by our Lake Mead eye doctors is called the puff test, which involves the measurement of what happens when a puff of air if blown across the surface of the eye. Another test uses a special device to measure eye pressure by touching the surface of the eye. Both tests are painless and reveal discrepancies in intraocular pressure, which may suggest glaucoma. However, a true diagnosis of glaucoma will also include a detailed examination of the retina and optic nerve.
