Glaucoma is the second leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide, but has no symptoms in its early stages, meaning that 50% of those affected don't know it. It is best detected through regular comprehensive eye exams with your optometrist.
Fortunately, early diagnosis and effective treatment can slow disease progression, helping patients maintain their vision-related quality of life.
See your optometrist regularly, and we'll do our best to help you enjoy a lifetime of healthy eyes and good vision.
The Why behind the What ...
An eye exam is not just the quick and dirty thing that you have to do in order to pick new glasses, and those glasses are not just a fashion accessory.
Everyone needs a “family eye doctor” who practices medical optometry to help ensure lifelong better vision and overall health, and who believes that there is no sense in doing anything less than perfectly.
Glasses are an ophthalmic appliance, which means that there is a precise science behind selecting, fabricating, and fitting them … although eyeglass fashion also happens to be a lot of fun.
