It is often called “the silent thief of sight” since there are no symptoms and once vision is lost, it’s permanent. The risk of having Glaucoma is higher for individuals over 60 or those with a family history of the disease.
Unfortunately, though, anyone can develop Glaucoma, at any age.
Glaucoma is not curable, but early diagnosis and treatment can prevent vision loss. We cannot stress highly enough how important regular eye exams are, especially for those at a higher risk.
