Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. In fact, some researchers predict that by 2040, glaucoma will become the leading cause of functional blindness. “Glaucoma” is actually a family of different diseases that usually cause increased pressure within the eye, damaging the optic nerve. As the optic nerve is damaged over time by this pressure, blind spots may appear in peripheral vision, and will eventually affect central vision.
Unfortunately, symptoms usually do not become evident until vision is already severely damaged. If caught early, however, the disease can be controlled and permanent vision loss prevented.
