Glaucoma Awareness Month

January is National Glaucoma Month, a time to spread awareness about the condition that puts pressure on the eye. The specific part of the eye that feels the intense pressure provides information to the brain, the optic nerve. If left untreated, glaucoma can eventually cause total blindness. While this sounds scary, regular testing and eye exams can help providers discover glaucoma before severe damage occurs.
