January is Glaucoma Awareness Month
Currently, more than 3 million people in the United States have glaucoma. The National Eye Institute projects this number will reach 4.2 million by 2030, a 58 percent increase.
In the US alone, glaucoma has caused blindness in approximately 120,000 people.
Since glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable blindness, it pays to have your vision checked. Schedule an appointment with Cedar Valley Eye Care and stop Glaucoma in it’s tracks.
