Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a specific pattern of diseases that damage the optic nerve and cause irreversible blindness. The optic nerve carries the images we see to the brain. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness among older people in the U.S. Sometimes called the "silent thief of sight," glaucoma can affect a person's sight before they realize they have the disease. While there is no known cure, loss of sight is largely preventable if glaucoma is caught and treated early.
