Did you know that glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in the United States?
This video provides an overview on the causes and symptoms of glaucoma. Glaucoma is a progressive eye disease caused by damage to the optic nerve, often the result of increased intraocular eye pressure due to a narrow duct opening, or clog deep within the draining canals. Unfortunately, most individuals with this degenerating disease do not exhibit any symptoms until it has reached a much more advanced stage. Watch this clip to learn more.
