"Glaucoma causes vision loss by damaging the optic nerve in the back of your eye. One of the first signs of glaucoma is loss of peripheral (side) vision. Eye exams can catch glaucoma early, before it affects your vision" (National Eye Institute, 2022)

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month. Did you know that Glaucoma is known as the 'The Silent Thief of Sight'.

Glaucoma has no early symptoms and most people don't know they have it. There is no cure. The only way to check for Glaucoma is to get a comprehensive eye exam. Start the New Year in the right direction and schedule an eye exam today.

The annual solar eclipse will be visible on October 14. Be sure to wear protective eyewear when viewing.

According to the American Optometric Association “Eclipse blindness" occurs when eyes are exposed to the sun and the light exposure damages or destroys cells in the retina. These retinal burns, also known as solar retinopathy, can be temporary or permanent with no associated pain. Sunglasses, unfiltered telescopes, and polarizing filters are not safe to use to view an eclipse."
