January Glaucoma Awareness Month

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month

Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible blindness in the United States. Glaucoma has no noticeable symptoms in its early stages, and vision loss progresses at such a gradual rate that people affected by the condition are often unaware of it until their sight has already been compromised. During Glaucoma Awareness Month in January, the American Academy of Ophthalmology advises the public that the best defense against developing glaucoma-related blindness is by having routine, comprehensive eye exams.

If you think you may have glaucoma or any other eye disease and would like a full comprehensive eye exam call Griffin Eye Center at 843-449-6414 or toll free 888-570-5789.
