NO PAIN. NO SYMPTOMS. NO WONDER IT'S CALLED
THE SILENT THIEF OF SIGHT.
Glaucoma is a group of eye disorders that lead to damage of the optic nerve and result in vision loss and blindness. Because there are usually no symptoms or pain associated with the onset of Glaucoma, it's called the Silent Thief of Sight.
GLAUCOMA IS A LEADING CAUSE OF BLINDNESS.
An estimated 120,000 Americans are blind as a result of glaucoma. That represents 9% to 12% of all causes of blindness in the U.S.
ONLY AN EYE EXAM CAN DETECT GLAUCOMA.
Glaucoma can only be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye health examination. The most efficient diagnosis is with dilation or a retinal scan.
Of the estimated 3 million Americans that have glaucoma, only half know they have it. For the sake of your sight, please contact our office to schedule an eye examination.
