If you live in Chicago Ridge, IL, Tinley Park, IL, or Munster, IN, we invite you to contact our office to set up a comprehensive eye exam. Our team can evaluate your condition to determine which treatment approach is best for you. We look forward to serving you.

types of glaucoma surgeries
Our team of ophthalmologists at Ticho Eye Associates specializes in medical, laser, and surgical treatments for glaucoma. The most common approaches we use for managing glaucoma include minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), laser therapy, and prescription eye drops. While each of these techniques has its benefits and limitations, they are all designed to reduce eye pressure, preserve the optic nerve, slow disease progression, and maintain optimal vision. During your initial treatment planning session, we can review these procedures in detail and help answer all your questions.
ADVANCED GLAUCOMA MANAGEMENT
