January 2022: Glaucoma Awareness
January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month, an important time to spread the word about this sight-stealing disease.
More than 3 million people in the United States have glaucoma. The National Eye Institute projects this number will reach 4.2 million by 2030, a 58 percent increase.
Glaucoma is called “the sneak thief of sight” since there are no symptoms and once vision is lost, it’s permanent. As much as 40% of vision can be lost without a person noticing.
