Glaucoma Diagnosis & Advanced Treatment with Laser
We possess the absolute best diagnostic and laser equipment to detect and treat glaucoma in-house!
Glaucoma is a very common eye condition that usually stems from high eye (intraocular) pressure. Just like a basketball, the higher the pressure, the harder the eye. This high intraocular pressure is thought to lead to damage to the optic nerve, which, can cause permanent blindness over time.
Dr. Soroudi checks each and every one of his patients for glaucoma (no matter the reason of their visit), as this is one eye condition that can be easily prevented or treated with early detection.Contact the Los Angeles glaucoma specialist if you’re located in:

The Optic Nerve
Patient with Glaucoma
There are many available technologies to test and monitor the health of your vision, visual field, and optic nerve, and Dr. Soroudi possesses only the most advanced technology available to date. The Soroudi Advanced LASIK & Eye Center is equipped with a Humphrey Field Analyzer, which is the “gold standard” in glaucoma screening today, as well as a Cirrus (high-definition) OCT unit which provides extremely accurate imaging and analysis of the optic nerve, all by Carl Zeiss Meditec. Our office also has the most up to date Pachymeter (Pachmate DGH55) to best examine the central corneal thickness (an important clue in the management of glaucoma).
The Visual Field
Patient with Glaucoma
The Soroudi Advanced LASIK & Eye Center is also equipped with a Carl Zeiss high definition non-mydriatic fundus photographer which allows accurate imaging of the optic nerve for close observation.
Progressive (permanent) visual field loss in a patient with untreated glaucoma
Although the mainstay of glaucoma treatment today is the use of a variety of eye drops which effectively reduce the intraocular pressure, Dr. Soroudi is trained and experienced in utilizing laser technology to reduce eye pressure, obviating the need for regular eye drops. To this end, Dr. Soroudi utilizes ALT (Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty) or SLT (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty) to help lower his patients’ intraocular pressures.Dr. Soroudi – a top eye surgeon in his field – utilizes an advanced laser system to target specific parts of the eye which are responsible for the drainage of the aqueous humor (the water that fills the front portion of our eyes).
