This month we are focusing on senior vision loss.
We have talked about Diabetes, AMD, and Cataracts this week. Today we are going to talk about Glaucoma.
Glaucoma is a disease that damages the optic nerve.
Unfortunately, Glaucoma causes permanent vision loss. There is no way to fix the damage, at least right now. It's very important to go to the eye doctor regularly, and to go immediately if you have any symptoms of glaucoma.
