Glaucoma Awareness Month

This month is National Glaucoma Awareness Month. January is an important time to raise awareness and spread the word about glaucoma, its symptoms and its treatment. The disease is considered the “silent thief of sight” as there are virtually no symptoms associated with it and once vision is lost, it’s gone for good.

With these numbers growing, it is very important to not only receive regular eye examinations, but to help raise awareness about the disease as well.… Read more
