Did You Know?

Did you know that you could be going blind and not even know it? That's what glaucoma does. It sneaks up on you very slowly over time. It's a leading cause of blindness in all adults over 60. But some people are especially at risk. If you're Black and over 40, you're up to five times more likely to get glaucoma. Or if you have a family history of glaucoma, you're also at high risk. Glaucoma can't be cured, but it can be controlled and the risk of blindness reduced-if glaucoma is detected and treated in time. That's why it's so important for people with an increased risk to have regular eye exams. Seattle glaucoma specialist, Howard Barnebey, MD is one of a very small group of local eye doctors dedicated to glaucoma and helping patients with this terrible eye disease.
