Glaucoma is a devastating condition, one that is not very well understood. The vision lost cannot be regained, we can only try to slow down it’s progression. Getting your eyes examined regularly, even when you don’t have vision problems, is very important. The pressure testing we do during the exam enables us to see if you’re at risk of developing Glaucoma, and therefore refer you accordingly before vision is lost. This condition is hereditary, so if you have a parent or grandparent who has or had Glaucoma, it’s even more important for you to have your eyes examined regularly.
