Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. People who are over the age of 50, have a family history of glaucoma or are of the African-American race have an increased risk of developing glaucoma. Without timely diagnosis, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss.
Dr. Alan Mandell is a fellowship trained glaucoma specialist with over 20 years experience in the Memphis area. All of the doctors at Total Eye Care are dedicated to the early diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma.
Glaucoma can be successfully treated using medication or lasers. Dr. Mandell has even developed a surgical procedure which now bears his name. The Mandell Procedure combines modern cataract and glaucoma surgery.
