It’s National Glaucoma Awareness Month. This is a group of eye diseases that can cause loss of vision and blindness. Symptoms develop slowly, so you may not notice.

You’re at higher risk if:

  • You’re over age 60
  • You’re African American, Hispanic and over age 40
  • you have a family history of glaucoma

Find out if you have glaucoma by getting a dilated eye exam.
