How Can Glaucoma Affect My Vision?
Glaucoma is an eye disease that occurs when pressure builds up inside the eye, causing damage to the optic nerve. Over time, this begins to disrupt the optic nerve’s ability to send visual information to the brain. Without proper and timely diagnosis and treatment, this can result in significant vision loss, up to and including blindness. In many cases, patients don’t notice symptoms of glaucoma until significant and irreversible damage has already been done. That’s why annual comprehensive eye exams that include testing for signs of glaucoma are so important. Do you have a family history of glaucoma? Or have you been diagnosed with high inner eye pressure? If so, you should speak to our eye care team about how often you should come in for a glaucoma screening.
