How to Effectively Control Your Glaucoma
One of the country's preeminent eye surgeons, Dr. Ravi Patel, joins host of The Wizard of Eyes, Dr. Robert Abel, to discuss the common surgical options for patients who are losing peripheral vision from glaucoma.

The good news is that glaucoma can be managed if detected early, and that with medical and/or surgical treatment, most people with glaucoma will not lose their sight.
