As January 2015 come to an end, The Eye Clinic of Texas wants to remind patients and their families that as Prevent Blindness America has designated January as National Glaucoma Awareness Month. This is a reminder that if you have not already done so, you should remember to schedule a regular eye exam with glaucoma screenings as this is a key to early detection, diagnosis and treatment and goes a long way to maintaining eye health and vision. While we have made enormous progress in reducing glaucoma blindness, the fact remains that some 13%-15% of patients with glaucoma still do go blind. The best way to avoid vision loss from glaucoma is to help us find it early so that we can achieve the best treatment results and outcomes for you should it be necessary.
