More than 2.2 million Americans aged forty and older have glaucoma, but as many as one half may be unaware they have this potentially blinding disease, because they have no symptoms – until it is too late and significant and irreversible damage already has occurred.
Glaucoma is a condition in which the optic nerve gets damaged by inappropriate intraocular pressure. There are several different types of glaucoma. Regardless of type, if not diagnosed early and properly managed, Glaucoma will result in permanent vision loss and potentially blindness.
Proper and timely diagnosis of Glaucoma is the key in maintaining good vision.
