There’s five factors that help your primary eye care provider determine if you have glaucoma:

eye doctor, eye exam, eyeglasses, eye glasses, optometrist, optometry
Glaucoma Evaluation and Screening

1.     Tonometry – to check the inner eye pressure

2.     Ophthalmoscopy (dilated eye exam) – to check the shape and color of the optic nerve head

3.     Perimetry (visual field) – to check the complete field of vision

4.     Gonioscopy – to check the angle inside the eye where the iris meets the cornea

5.     Pachymetry – to check the thickness of the cornea

Regular glaucoma check-ups include two routine eye tests: tonometry and ophthalmoscopy.
