Glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the United States. Right now, there are as many as 40 million people around the world who aren’t yet aware that glaucoma is silently stealing their sight.

Glaucoma can sneak up on you. And though there isn’t yet a cure, early detection and treatment can protect your precious sight.

The Glaucoma Foundation encourages you to get a comprehensive dilated eye examination now and every year.
