What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an eye disorder that results from damage to the optic nerve. Often called the “silent thief of sight,” this degenerative eye disease slowly steals vision without readily apparent symptoms. If left untreated, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision damage or blindness. This is why it is so important to have regular eye exams. Otherwise, you may not realize this silent disease is damaging your vision.
