Glaucoma Awareness Month

Glaucoma – the proper pronunciation is glaw-koh-muh, but many will come up with their own way of saying it. No, it has nothing to do with guns, glowing, or glue. It actually isn’t completely understood at this time. What you do need to know about it is that it can cause severe permanent vision loss if left untreated. It is a silent thief of vision – as many eye diseases usually are. January was glaucoma awareness month, so I thought it’d be appropriate to shed some light on this condition.
