Normal vision vs vision with glaucoma.jpg

Have you ever considered how much you rely on your side vision daily? Whether you're driving, biking, walking, or navigating through a crowd, your side vision is crucial! Even without any visible eye or vision problems, you could still have glaucoma, an eye disease that affects your peripheral vision.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve, the vital connection between your eye and brain that enables you to see. The exact cause of glaucoma is still unknown, but risk factors include age, family history, elevated eye pressure (IOP), and being of African American, Asian, or Hispanic descent.

Fortunately, there are effective treatments to manage glaucoma and lower the pressure inside your eye to safe levels. Eye drops, laser treatments, and surgeries are all viable options. Most commonly, glaucoma is treated with eye drops or a simple in-office laser procedure.
