January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month

Glaucoma is a major global health problem – a leading cause of blindness worldwide. TGF advocates for earlier and more accurate diagnosis of glaucoma, and more and better treatment options.  As many as half of people who have glaucoma do not yet know it. This is why annual eye exams are so important. Early detection is key.

Regular eye exams can not only detect changes in your vision, they can reveal the state of your general health and identify serious diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and thyroid disorders.
