Glaucoma refers to a group of eye diseases, which if left undetected, can lead to a significant decrease in sight or even blindness. Glaucoma develops due to the improper drainage of fluid in the eye (aqueous humor) leading to increased eye pressure, resulting in optic nerve damage.

The underlying cause of glaucoma is unknown, and anyone can be at risk, regardless of age.

Regular eye exams can lead to early detection and treatment, which often prevents loss of sight. Glaucoma symptoms vary depending on the type of glaucoma a patient is experiencing, and it is possible to have no symptoms at all. According to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, it is estimated that more than 4 million Americans have Glaucoma, but only half of them are aware of it.

Glaucoma remains the leading cause of blindness in adults despite simple early detection testing and readily available, painless treatment. High on the list of causes is a remarkably high level of inadequate medication usage. This problem becomes even more difficult due to the high cost of medications, especially if they are not covered by insurance or Medicare, and the patient is on a relatively fixed income.

If you suspect you may have Glaucoma or you have a family history, call to schedule your eye exam today.
