What Is Glaucoma?

Last updated 6 years ago

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.

Find out if you’re at risk for glaucoma by setting up a comprehensive eye exam with the Wize Eyes eyeglass stores in Long Island. Visit our website or call (516) 358-0040 to get started.
