What is Glaucoma?
Often called "the
sneak-thief of sight." Glaucoma is an eye disease associated with
too much fluid pressure within the eye.
If medical treatment is prompt, the progress of vision loss from
glaucoma can be stopped, but sight already destroyed can not be
restored. Regular medical eye examinations (including visual field
examinations) every two years is the best
defense against glaucoma. Visual field examinations are an evaluation
tool for the function of the optic nerve.
