Glaucoma is a disease of the eye whereby there can be buildup of fluid within the eye causing increased pressure. When this occurs there is a risk of damage to the optic nerve, a part of the eye that is necessary for good vision.
Because glaucoma is without visual symptoms until serious damage has occurred, people can go for years without even knowing that they have it. Unfortunately this undetected condition can cause vision loss if left untreated.
The only way to diagnose glaucoma is with a thorough eye examination. That is the reason that we recommend that everyone have a comprehensive eye examination at least every 2 years, even people that do not wear any type of eyewear.
