January is Glaucoma Awareness Month! Glaucoma is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the United States. Anyone can get glaucoma, but African Americans over the age of 40 and everyone over the age of 60, especially Hispanics/Latinos are more at risk. Due to the fact that glaucoma has no symptoms in the early stages, only 50% of those who have it are aware. Early detection is key to controlling glaucoma and preventing severe vision lost.
