Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a serious condition in which the optic nerve of the eye (which carries information from your eyes to the visual center in your brain) is slowly compromised, resulting in permanent loss of vision.

There are no early warning signs of Glaucoma and damage is irreversible which is why it is extremely important to see your eye doctor for regular eye exams. Your doctor can perform a variety of tests to make sure your eyes are not affected by glaucoma, and will make recommendations for appropriate treatment if they are.
