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.
