Glaucoma Awareness

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that progressively damage the optic nerve of the eye.

Glaucoma is the second most common cause of blindness worldwide. It is estimated that 4.5 million persons globally are blind due to glaucoma and that this number will rise to 11.2 million by 2020.

Glaucoma is diagnosed by undergoing a comprehensive eye exam that includes a detailed examination of the optic nerve and may require visual field testing and imaging. Intraocular pressure testing alone is not a reliable method for diagnosing glaucoma.
