Glaucoma Awareness

awareness-logo-glaucoma.jpg

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can damage the eye's optic nerve and result in vision loss and blindness. Glaucoma occurs when the normal fluid pressure inside the eyes slowly rises. However, recent findings now show that glaucoma can occur with normal eye pressure. With early treatment, you can often protect your eyes against serious vision loss. See pictures and other eye disorders at www.cdc.gov and www.glaucoma.org.
