Nothing is more precious than your eye sight. As you look at the world around you, think about how valuable your vision is. Now think how your world would be if you were losing your eye sight to a silent disease called glaucoma. Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that gradually steals your sight without warning and often without symptoms. Every year, millions of people around the world develop glaucoma and each day, without treatment, can bring them one step closer to blindness.

What Is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a group of diseases that cause damage to the optic nerve. The optic nerve is the part of the eye that carries the images we see to the brain. Glaucoma is often called the silent thief of sight, gradually stealing vision without warning and often without symptoms. If left untreated, glaucoma can lead to blindness. It was once thought that elevated pressure inside of the eye was the main cause of optic nerve damage. Although elevated pressure is clearly a risk factor, we now know that other factors must also be involved because even people with “normal” pressure can experience vision loss from glaucoma.
