This week is world Glaucoma week to raise awareness for Glaucoma. A condition where the optic nerve at the back of the eye is damaged resulting in permanent vision loss. In the early stages of Glaucoma there are often no symptoms. It is not until the late stages of the disease do those with Glaucoma start to show symptoms. These may include vision loss including a restricted visual field, car parking accidents, decreased contrast detection and an overall decrease in vision that cannot be corrected with spectacles, contact lenses or surgery. It is therefore, highly recommended that the general population receives regular eye examinations to diagnose the disease early before severe visual impairment is reached. Early treatment can significantly reduce the rate and amount of vision loss.
