Glaucoma is an eye disease that involves a progressive and permanent loss of peripheral vision that corresponds to the damage of nerve fibers at the optic nerve. It is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States.

While there is currently no cure for glaucoma, often vision loss can be halted or slowed through the use of topical medication. When medication fails to stop the progression of the disease, laser treatments or surgery may be employed with a glaucoma surgeon.

The most dangerous component of glaucoma is its ‘silent’ nature. A person who has glaucoma may not be aware of the vision loss until the disease is very advanced and vision loss is extensive and irreparable. A routine annual eye examination is the best way to screen for glaucoma and potentially catch the disease in its earliest stages, often before vision loss has occurred.
