Glaucoma Ophthalmologist Consultation
Specialty Physician Consultation – 1-hour examination and assessment with related review and treatment recommendations.
Glaucoma refers to a group of eye conditions that lead to damage to the optic nerve, the nerve that carries visual information from the eye to the brain.
In many cases, damage to the optic nerve is due to increased pressure in the eye, also known as intraocular pressure (IOP).
The front part of the eye is filled with a clear fluid that is always being made in the back of the eye. Anything that slows or blocks the flow of this fluid out of the eye will cause pressure to build up in the eye.
The total cost of Glaucoma Ophthalmologist Consultation includes a one-hour consultation with a specialist. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
