What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an eye disease if not detected and treated can lead to significant visual loss and even blindness. Glaucoma often evolves with no warning signs. It has been aptly named the "sneak thief of sight." Minor difficulty with eye aches, blurred vision, colored halos or diminished side vision are possible symptoms. Many times symptoms go unnoticed and only occur with advanced disease.
There is no cure for glaucoma but glaucoma can be managed and your eyesight can be saved. Treatment may be a balance of medications in the form of eye drop regime, laser, or microsurgery to control ocular pressure.

Collaborating with other specialists around the globe and sharing this unique quest for knowledge requires commitment to hours of ongoing education. Active participation in research and development of new medicines, diagnostic equipment and surgical procedures, continually contribute to advancements in better eye health.
