Glaucoma - Silent Thief of Sight

January 27, 2016

January is National Glaucoma Awareness month and awareness is vital as Glaucoma can cause vision loss without any symptoms. Scary, right?! Open-angle glaucoma, the most common form, rarely causes symptoms until it’s in an advanced stage. Hence why it’s known as the silent thief of sight.

Being proactive and getting your eyes checked regularly is incredibly important as your eye doctor can spot the signs of glaucoma like worse peripheral vision (side vision), optic nerve damage and elevated eye pressure.

The Nationwide staff was very efficient. Demetre in particular was very kind and explained to us about the style and choice of eyewear for my daughter. Thank you!

My experience was very good. Dr. Peters and his staff answered all my questions and were willing to “narrate” step by step as the procedure was happening. The procedure and day of surgery went very quickly.
