Glaucoma is a common, progressive disease that causes damage to the optic nerve. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the United States, and it typically develops gradually with few warning signs. Left untreated, glaucoma can lead to irreversible vision loss.

Loss of vision from glaucoma is preventable if caught promptly and treated by your eye doctor, so early detection and prevention are critical. Regular eye exams are an important measure you can take to ensure the health of your eyes.
