We offer a full range of patient services related to the care of patients with glaucoma.
In addition to seeing patients by referral for glaucoma, we follow patients with established glaucoma and those at high risk of developing glaucoma, often in collaboration with the referring eye care professional.
We have the full range of diagnostic testing at our facility, including two visual field machines, an HRT nerve head scanner, two pachymetries (to measure the corneal thickness), ultrasound, and other imaging devices.
For treatment options, we can prescribe medical therapy or perform laser and surgical treatments with some of the newest as well as more established techniques and devices. When surgery is required, Dr. Schertzer has regularly scheduled operating room time at the adjacent VHHSC/UBC Eye Care Centre.
