National Glaucoma Awareness Month

The most terrifying things in life are the ones that strike us unawares; they blindside us. That’s why glaucoma is such a frightening disease and why January has been designated National Glaucoma Awareness Month. Glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable blindness in this country, and it has already claimed the vision of 120,000 Americans and nearly 4 million others have earlier stages of the disease.
