What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a disease common, and serious, enough that every single one of our eye exams includes comprehensive screenings to spot any early signs of glaucoma. Glaucoma is a disease not easily spotted by patients, and can cause permanent vision damage if it is not treated early enough.
Glaucoma is more often seen affecting older patients around or above the age of 60, but it can be detected in younger ages. The only way to effectively treat glaucoma before it affects your vision is through early detection by way of eye exams.
