glaucomaPhoto of optic nerve discs with glaucoma. The brighter white in the center of the disc is the “cupping” of the disc that physicians measure to determine if there is any change over time. In glaucoma, this area can become larger and deeper, resulting in nerve fiber loss, which permanently reduces peripheral vision.

What Our Patients Are Saying

My experience at EMG was one of the best. The staff was friendly and informative. I felt very comfortable with the entire experience. All my questions were answered and explained.

I have been visiting Dr. Samuel Solish here and I've found the staff attentive, the waiting times were short, and the treatment was first rate. The examinations were thorough and the explanations were easy to understand, and they never hurried me. And as an added bonus, it's near the Portland Transportation Center, so I can travel most of the way via a bus.
