An Eye on Vision Issues!
Volume 1: Issue 3; Week of January 20 to 26, 2013.
January is Glaucoma Awareness month. Anyone can develop glaucoma but research has pinpointed three groups who are most likely affected by the condition. The groups include African Americans over age 40, anyone over age 60 especially Mexican Americans and people with a family history of the disease. Eye doctors recommend a comprehensive eye exam every one to two years for those most likely affected by glaucoma. Early detection and treatment is the best way to control the disease. Symptoms usually appear only after the disease is in an advanced state.
