Unfortunately, more than three million Americans have glaucoma, the leading cause of blindness but only half of them are aware. Frequently called ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can strike without any symptoms. Most adults in America fail to use eye glasses or contacts and don't receive comprehensive eye exams, thus leaving their eyes at great risk.
The problem is that most people don't know that sight-stealing conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration are often a-symptomatic and without a comprehensive eye exam are often found only when it's too advanced.
Regular eye and vision exams to screen for eye disease should be on your to-do list. Be sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local optometrist to keep up your vision and eye health for many long years.
