It's really important to have regular eye examinations as the optometrist can detect this disease.

Glaucoma quick facts

  • Glaucoma is an eye disease that is often associated with elevated intraocular pressure, in which damage to the optic nerve in the eye can lead to loss of vision and even blindness.
  • Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world.
  • Glaucoma usually causes no symptoms early in its course, at which time it can only be diagnosed by regular eye examinations. That is why Glaucoma is often called 'the silent thief of sight'.
