Glaucoma Awareness Month

Glaucoma-picture

At Okotoks Eyecare, we are passionate about glaucoma prevention! And January just so happens to be #glaucomaawarenessmonth Did you know that glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness around the world? It is called “the silent thief of sight.” Many people are unaware that glaucoma has no symptoms in its early stages. Vision lost from glaucoma cannot be restored. However early detection by a #doctorofoptometry means glaucoma can usually be controlled and severe vision loss can often be prevented. That’s why #annual eye exams and #glaucomaworkups if necessary can save your sight! #okotokseyecare #glaucomaawareness #saveyoursight #weloveeyes #annualeyeexam #care1 #nationaleyehealtheducationprogram #healthyvision #resolutions
