Do you know one eye disease that is completely silent until it is very severe?
Glaucoma is a disease that damages your optic nerve. It slowly takes away your peripheral vision and this is never something patients are aware of until it's in the advanced stage.
How do you prevent this?
Annual eye exams! Prevention is key and annual exams (and sometimes extra testing, like the equipment you see here) is needed to catch early changes.
I say this all the time but being proactive about your health is much better than being reactive!
When was your last eye exam?
