Corrective Eye Center Promotes Glaucoma Awareness Month

glaucoma awarenessIt’s Glaucoma Awareness month, glaucoma is an eye affliction that’s caused by increased pressure in the eye that causes damage to the delicate nerve fibers responsible for vision.

January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month. Join us as we spread the word about this sight-robbing eye disease.

Here’s what you can do to help promote glaucoma awareness throughout the month of January:

  1. Keep in mind that glaucoma is most common in people with a family history of the disease, so talk to your loved ones and find out if you’re at an increased risk.
  2. Learn more about glaucoma exams and treatments.
  3. Schedule a comprehensive eye exam today to be on the safe side.

Glaucoma is a silent vision thief that can cause permanent and serious blindness before you are even aware of the change.

In order to help more of our patients understand the dangers of this eye condition, Corrective Eye Center urges everyone to schedule a comprehensive eye exam.
