Combatting the “Silent Thief of Sight”
Glaucoma is a group of eye disorders characterized by damage to the optic nerve, the part of the eye that sends images to the brain. The damage can cause significant vision loss and can even lead to blindness.
Often, the early stages of glaucoma are left to progress as there are no visible symptoms until permanent damage has already set in. The best way to prevent glaucoma is to have regular eye exams so your optometrist can have a close look at your eyes and run tests to ensure everything is in tip-top shape.
