January is Glaucoma Awareness Month. This is just one of the conditions that can be diagnosed as part of a comprehensive eye examination. Glaucoma threatens sight as it damages the optic nerve. Treatments are available that may slow or prevent further damage. As glaucoma is a mostly “symptomless” disease, many people may go undiagnosed without proper eye care.
We are passionate about protecting the eye health of our patients and we have advanced testing available in our office if risk factors are detected in the exam. Consider making an appointment for yourself or a loved one if you haven’t been checked in a while. Spread the word about preventative eyecare.
