Glaucoma is a vision threatening eye disease that can lead to blindness by damaging the optic nerve. This nerve transmits information from the eye to the brain, where it is processed and interpreted. Glaucoma is particularly dangerous to your vision because there are usually no noticeable initial symptoms or early warning signs.

The best way to protect your sight is to schedule regular comprehensive dilated eye exams, which should include all of the following components:

✔️A health and medication check up
✔️A vision check
✔️ Comprehensive visual acuity testing
✔️Basic visual field testing
