January is Glaucoma Awareness Month

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month

Glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the United States. People are often unaware that glaucoma has no symptoms in its early stages. If detected early, before noticeable vision loss occurs, glaucoma can usually be controlled and severe vision loss can often be prevented. The vision lost from glaucoma cannot be restored.

Anyone can get glaucoma, but those at higher risk include:

  • African Americans over age 40
  • Everyone over age 60, especially Hispanics/Latinos
  • People with a family history of the disease

The Optometrists inside Europtics encourage annual eye exams which can detect early signs of glaucoma as well as diabetes and a number of other health conditions.  Click here to schedule an exam at the Europtics location most convenient to you.
