Don’t Lose Sight of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the United States.

With glaucoma typically having no symptoms in its early stages, early detection through a comprehensive dilated eye exam and treatment with medication or surgery can help reduce severe vision loss from glaucoma.

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

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