The Silent Sight Killer
Glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable blindness. Regular eye exams are extremely important to preserve vision. There are no symptoms of Glaucoma and vision loss due to the condition is permanent. As much as 40 percent of vision can be lost without a person noticing.
Currently, more than 2.7 million people in the United States over age 40 have glaucoma. The National Eye Institute projects this number to reach 4.2 million by 2030—a startling 58 percent increase.
