The Silent Thief Of Sight
Glaucoma is an eye condition characterized by increased pressure in the eye that can destroy the sensitive nerve fibers responsible for clear vision. Vision is damaged over time and, if left undiagnosed or untreated, glaucoma can lead to irreversible blindness.
Because glaucoma often does not have symptoms (especially in its early stages), it has been called “the silent thief of sight”. Early detection and treatment are vital to the prevention of vision loss. Annual comprehensive eye exams with an experienced eye doctor will screen for glaucoma and catch it before it can damage your sight.
