Glaucoma is a condition that affects the optic nerve and if not treated, may lead to permanent vision loss. What is perhaps most concerning about glaucoma is that in the early stages of the disease there are no symptoms that can be seen or felt by the patient. Like blood pressure, there is no way for a person to know they have a problem unless it is found by their doctor or until the later stages when vision is already lost.
Early detection with advanced imaging technology, coupled with proper treatment and monitoring schedules are crucial to avoiding vision loss and/or blindness from these silent conditions.
