What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a group of diseases that cause optic nerve damage, and ultimately, vision loss. In many cases, the optic nerve damage will cause vision loss that presents as a reduced visual field, or peripheral vision loss.
Over 1 million Americans over 65 have experienced vision loss from glaucoma. It is a significant cause of vision loss and blindness in America. To protect your vision from glaucoma, it’s important to have an eye exam once per year.
