National Glaucoma Awareness Month

January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month! Glaucoma is a disease that, if untreated, can cause blindness due to optic nerve damage. Glaucoma is a disease that does not hurt, and the vision loss caused by glaucoma has to be very substantial before you notice any changes in your vision. With glaucoma affecting 2.7 million Americans, making sure you undergo regular comprehensive eye exams is the best way to prevent any vision loss from glaucoma.
