Did you know that January is Glaucoma Awareness Month?
Glaucoma is also known as the "Silent thief of sight" as it causes a gradual loss of peripheral vision due to the optic nerve getting damaged painlessly, causing total loss of vision in its final stages.
Once you have lost vision as a result of glaucoma, you can't get it back. But, if you pick up on early symptoms soon enough, you can prevent any further vision loss.
Early detection is EVERYTHING when it comes to glaucoma. Please don’t forget to schedule your yearly eye exam so diseases like glaucoma do not go undetected.
