Glaucoma: The Silent Thief Of Sight

GlaucomaWhat is glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a group of eye disorders that leads to damage of the optic nerve, resulting in potential vision loss or blindness. Because there are usually no symptoms or pain associated with the onset of Glaucoma, it’s called the “Silent Thief of Sight”.

Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness.

An estimated 120,000 Americans are blind as a result of glaucoma. That represents 9% to 12% of all causes of blindness in the U.S.

Only an eye exam can detect glaucoma.

Glaucoma can only be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye examination that includes an evaluation of the internal ocular health, via retinal imaging or dilation.

Of the estimated 3 million Americans that have glaucoma, only half may know they have it. For the sake of your sight, please contact our office to schedule an eye examination.
