Detect Glaucoma Early
One of the main reasons why our optometrists include glaucoma screenings in all eye exams is because glaucoma is one the leading causes of blindness, especially for adults over the age of 60. Glaucoma is hard for patients to spot, and symptoms will not start to appear until the disease has already reached an advanced stage of development.
However, glaucoma does not mean the end of your eyesight. If detected early enough, glaucoma can be managed and mitigated with the help of your optometrists. The first step, however, is to book your next eye exam.
