Anyone can develop glaucoma. More than 2.7 million Americans over age 40 have glaucoma. That number is estimated to more than double by 2050.
Glaucoma is an eye disease which involves damage to the optic nerve, sometimes resulting in permanent vision loss. It is one of the leading causes of blindness in adults over age 60. Most of often glaucoma is associated with pressure build up inside the eye.
Getting a comprehensive dilated eye exam is the only way to catch glaucoma early. It's a Crucial Time to Keep People in the Know about this Eye Condition.
