Glaucoma Awareness

Did you know that Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible vision loss in the United States affecting about three million Americans? Unfortunately only half are aware that they have this blinding disease because glaucoma develops without warning.

Often treatment isn’t sought until a degree of vision has deteriorated. Dr. Beyer is able to offer the Cirrus OCT scanning Laser Polarimeter which utilizes the newest technology for early detection of glaucoma. Big Sky Eye Care is the only practice in the Bitterroot to offer the comprehensive, non-invasive OCT testing.

At Big Sky Eye Care, our goal is to provide the best possible care for our patients, says Dr. Beyer. “The OCT offers the most advanced warning of Glaucoma- often before symptoms appear.” We are able to detect glaucoma 3 to 5 years earlier than we were able to in the past and early detection of glaucoma gives the patients the best possible experience with treating the disease.”

Protect your eyes from glaucoma- “The Silent Thief of Sight.” If it’s been over two years since your last eye exam, call Big Sky Eye Care today for a comprehensive eye health examination.
