Lafayette, CO Glaucoma - Eye Care Center of Northern ColoradoWe invite you to schedule eye exams for you and your family at our conveniently located eye care centers Another great reason to visit us at our Boulder, Longmont, Greeley or Lafayette eye doctors’ offices is to periodically receive glaucoma testing. Glaucoma is a group of potentially blinding eye disorders characterized by optic nerve deterioration. There are many forms of the disease, both acute and chronic, but if left untreated, glaucoma can lead to blindness. Early diagnosis and management is the key to preventing this eye disease from causing blindness. Dr. Anjali ShethWhether diagnosing  glaucoma at its earliest stage, or treating the most advanced cases of the disease, Dr. Micah Rothstein and Dr. Anjali Sheth, fellowship trained glaucoma specialists, have the experience and expertise to handle the entire spectrum of glaucoma.

The Eye Care Center of Northern Colorado uses the latest advances in diagnostic imaging, including high resolution OCT and stereo fundus photography imaging. Our exam rooms are state of the art and allow for consultations in comfort and privacy.  You can view our exam rooms and in-house laser suite here.  We can perform glaucoma laser treatments like SLT, or selective laser trabeculoplasty, in a comfortable and convenient environment. For advanced cases requiring surgery, Dr. Rothstein and Dr. Sheth utilize the Longmont Surgery Center for performing procedures like cataract surgery, endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP), and traditional glaucoma filtering procedures.

Symptoms of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is often referred to as a “silent” thief of sight because many times there are no major symptoms of the condition in its early stages. Glaucoma is the result of optic nerve damage that may be caused by elevated intraocular (eye) pressure. If the condition is left untreated, blindness will occur.


MicroPulse Laser Treatment

At the Eye Care Center of Northern Colorado, we offer MicroPulse Laser Therapy (MPLT) to safely and effectively treat patients with retinal disorders and open-angle glaucoma. MicroPulse works by electronically "chopping" the continuous-wave laser emission used in conventional laser treatment, into trains of tiny, repetitive, low energy pulses separated by a brief rest period in between. This “micropulsing” allows the tissue to cool between laser pulses, preventing damage.
