Glaucoma Detection and Treatment

Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the U.S. if undetected, damage to the eye’s optic nerve can cause blind spots to develop. These blind spots often go undetected by patients until the optic nerve is significantly damaged. But the loss of sight from glaucoma can often be prevented with early treatment.
