Get Your Eyes Checked During Glaucoma Awareness Month

01/03/2019

 

 

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness in the US. It has no noticeable symptoms in its early stages and vision loss progresses at such a gradual rate that people affected by the condition are often unaware of it until their sight has already been compromised.
 
During Glaucoma Awareness Month, the AAO advises the public that the best defense against developing glaucoma-related blindness is by having routine, comprehensive eye exams.
