Glaucoma Awareness Month
January is Glaucoma Awareness Month
Known as the "Silent Thief of Sight" - glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye's optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up and increases pressure inside the eye. Often times this sneaky disease shows no symptoms in the early stages and isn't detected until the disease has progressed and irreversible damage has been done - so don't wait for symptoms to see your doctor! Regular eye exams are the key to early detection! There is no cure for glaucoma so treatment is the best way to control the disease. Treatment may prevent further loss of vision but will not restore vision that has already been lost. The good news is there are many products available that can help you maintain an independent lifestyle and continue to do the things you love.
