Glaucoma – Dealing With the Silent Thief of Sight
For diseases which have no cure, early diagnosis and proactive management are critical to retaining a useful amount of vision. Glaucoma quietly steals away your peripheral vision, without any pain, and if left untreated, can cause severe tunnel vision or total blindness.
Despite the lack of a cure, it is possible in many cases to slow progression, minimise associated symptoms and maintain a high standard of independent living.
