Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, and is one of the leading causes of blindness in adults.  Over 3 million Americans have it, and another estimated 6 million have it and don’t know it.  There are usually no symptoms of pain or blurred vision.  Noticeable vision loss is usually not seen until the more advanced stages of the disease.  The best defense is an annual eye exam, and early detection is a key to having the best control of the disease.  There are different types of glaucoma, and most have treatments ranging from eye drops to laser procedures attempting to lower the pressure inside the eye.

Glaucoma is a serious disease that could silently steal away your vision.  It can be controlled, but it has to be detected first.  Please call today to make an appointment so we can screen for one of the leading causes of blindness.
