Sharp Coronado Hospital
Laser Treatment for Glaucoma
Focusing on vision-saving treatment.
If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, a vision-saving laser treatment may reduce pain and eliminate your reliance on expensive medications.
At Sharp Coronado, we're proud to be the only hospital in San Diego to offer endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP) for glaucoma. ECP reduces or eliminates dependence on expensive medications, and uses diode laser and fiber-optic light to reduce pressure from inside the eye.
How does ECP work?
Glaucoma is a degenerative eye disease that damages the optic nerve with fluid buildup and pressure. It is a leading cause of blindness, affecting an estimated 6 million Americans.
While traditional glaucoma treatments use some combination of eye drops, medications and conventional surgery, ECP treatment eliminates the need to use expensive medications on inconvenient dosage schedules.
More than 60 percent of patients who receive ECP treatment eliminate their medications altogether, and 80 percent are able to decrease their medications significantly.
