Many people are unaware that glaucoma is actually not just one eye condition. In fact, the term “glaucoma” actually refers to a few eye conditions that are related by an increase pressure on, and therefore damage to, the optic nerve. An unfortunate fact about glaucoma is that the most common form of the disease develops in a very gradual, subtle manner. That is why getting regular glaucoma screenings is so important—if you do not have a professional evaluate your eyes regularly, you might miss the subtle changes that are occurring in your eyes and not realize that glaucoma is developing until serious damage has already been done. Two major risk factors associated with glaucoma are age and family history. If you are over the age of sixty, and/or you have a history of glaucoma in your family, it is of the utmost importance that you visit our Leonia glaucoma doctor for evaluations regularly. This can make a huge difference when it comes to early detection and treatment, which can often lead to better vision preservation and overall treatment quality over time.
