Glaucoma Center

Watch: Dr. Frank Cotter speaks with VirginiaFirst on Glaucoma Awareness Month and the importance of comprehensive eye exams.

Glaucoma is the silent, irreversible theft of sight. This common eye disease causes loss of sight by damaging a part of your eye called the optic nerve. More than 2.2 million Americans have glaucoma and at least one-half of all people with this eye disease do not know they have it. Vistar Eye Center Physicians are experts in detecting and treating glaucoma. Contact us today to begin preventative screening and protect your vision.

There are several types of glaucoma. The most common forms are open angle glaucoma and closed angle glaucoma.
