Glaucoma screenings are extremely important. Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that can cause damage of the optic nerve which can cause blindness. Usually, but not always, glaucoma is caused by abnormally high pressure in the eye, also known as intraocular pressure. Since there are most likely no symptoms until the advanced stages and the damage can cause blindness, early detection is critical. You need to get Glaucoma testing done by a professional eye doctor such as our Spring Valley Glaucoma Specialist, Romy Park, OD.
Glaucoma can develop so gradually that is can be unnoticeable to the patient. Since glaucoma as well as other eye diseases and conditions are like this (where most sign or symptoms don’t present themselves until the diseases have well advanced), it’s very important to get regular comprehensive eye exams in order to detect them early. By doing so you would then be able to get treated quickly which could prevent serious vision loss. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness so you need to take charge of your optimal health by doing everything possible to prevent such a horrible occurrence. Consult with your eye doctor to find out how often you should be tested for various eye disorders and diseases. This can vary based on your medical history and other factors.
