Experienced Glaucoma Specialist in Los Angeles
Glaucoma is a common ocular disease that, left untreated, can lead to permanent damage to the optic nerve and cause irreversible blindness. This process is caused by increased pressure in the eye, known as intraocular pressure. Dr. Soroudi has treated hundreds of patients suffering from various degrees and forms of advanced glaucoma, including open-angle and closed-angle glaucoma in Los Angeles. Our office offers full diagnostic and treatment services for glaucoma patients in Los Angeles, Huntington Park, Beverly Hills, Sherman Oaks, Westlake Village, Encino, and more.
The services we offer to help treat patients with glaucoma include:
- Glaucoma diagnosis and advanced treatment with laser – Dr. Soroudi is trained and experienced in using innovative laser technology to reduce intraocular eye pressure and effectively treat glaucoma. Laser technology can also be used to screen patients for glaucoma and monitor the health of their optic nerve and vision.
- Glaucoma surgery with tube-shunt implantation – Glaucoma patients whose eyes do not respond to eye drops or laser treatment may be candidates for tube-shunt implantation operations. This operation involves implanting special valves that help reduce severe ocular hypertension.
- Glaucoma surgery with trabeculectomy – These procedures are another commonly used option to reduce intraocular pressure and treat glaucoma. Dr. Soroudi performs trabeculectomy operations combined with Mitomycin-C application to the eye for better long-term results in patients whose conditions do not respond to non-surgical treatment options.
