It’s “World Glaucoma Week”. Glaucoma is known as the silent thief of sight. Without diagnosis & treatment, patients will slowly lose their peripheral (side) vision. Over time, they will feel as if they are looking through a tunnel. Patients can lose as much as 40% of their sight before they even begin to notice the loss.
People over the age of 40 should have a glaucoma test every two years and people over the age of 60 should get tested annually.
