The early signs of glaucoma typically don’t present any symptoms, which is why it’s often referred to as “The Silent Thief of Sight.”
The best detection of glaucoma is through annual eye exams. Glaucoma does run in families and is also prevalent in certain age groups and ethnicity. Left untreated, glaucoma can lead to vision loss and eventual blindness.
Comprehensive eye exams at Visionary Eye Care include numerous checks and tests for glaucoma. Dr. Metzger and Dr. Gates can recommend additional testing if any suspicion of glaucoma is present. From there, we can start treatment if needed. If it has been more than a year since your last eye exam, contact our team to schedule your appointment!
