Key-Whitman offers a wide range of treatments to keep intraocular pressure (IOP) at a healthy level. • Symfony®, Crystalens®, Tecnis® The primary objective of glaucoma treatment is to lower IOP. Secondarily, there are some treatments available that may help improve circulation. Most patients respond posi- tively to glaucoma eye drops, but other forms of treatment are available, depending on the patient’s needs. • Management of Glaucoma According to Dr. Barke, “We can use a laser to open the outflow channels to help manage pressure or perform sur- gery to reroute fluid in the eye so it drains more easily. Some new glaucoma treatment research also shows prom- ise, including a procedure where a tiny pellet implanted in the eye delivers a sustained dose of glaucoma medication. This treatment will be effective for patients, because they won’t have to remember to take eye drops anymore.” & the Toric IOL & Corneal Disease • Eyelid Surgery & Botox® • Laser Vision Correction Give us a call today 214-220-3937 or Toll-Free 800-442-5330 www.keywhitman.com Six locations to serve you Dallas, Mesquite, North Dallas, Plano, North Arlington & South Arlington.
