Glaucoma is the primary cause of vision loss, affecting over three million Americans. Glaucoma is sometimes called ''the sneak thief of sight'' because it can impair vision absent of signs. Most adult Americans fail to use visual aids and don't receive regular eye exams, therefore leaving their eyes at greater danger.
Even worse, many Americans are unaware about the seriousness of glaucoma. In a poll, the American Optometric Association determined that well over half of Americans are under the false impression that glaucoma is preventable. In actuality the sight-stealing disease cannot be prevented, while it is treatable if caught in the early stages, making regular screening much more important. Early detection is also necessary for halting the devastating effects of other eye conditions such as macular degeneration and cataracts.
Early eye disease detection should be a priority. Make sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local optometrist to keep up healthy eyes for years to come.
