How Is Glaucoma Diagnosed?

Due to the gradual development of symptoms with glaucoma, it is vital that you have regular eye tests, which can diagnose the condition early before significant and irreversible damage to your sight has occurred.

Your eye healthcare provider will take a full medical history and use various tests to diagnose glaucoma. These tests may include tonometry, a dilated eye exam, visual field tests, examination with a slit lamp and optical coherence tomography (OCT).
