January is Glaucoma Awareness Month

More than 2.2 million Americans over 40 have open angle glaucoma, and at least half are undiagnosed.  Prevent Blindess America has joined with other leading eye health organizations, as well as Norwalk Eye Care in urging everyone to make their sight a priority and have an eye exam.  Glaucoma slowly takes away vision, damaging the optic nerve, and diminising peripheral vision.  If left untreated, it can also damage central vision.  If identified early, treatment may be able to save vision- once vision is lost, it cannot be restored.

Norwalk Eye Care uses the latest in imaging technology to identify, monitor and treat glaucoma.  Make it part of your New Year's resolution to take care of your eyes and save your vision!
