Unfortunately, more than three million Americans have glaucoma, the leading cause of vision loss but only 50% of them realize this. Often referred to as ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can impair vision without any forewarning. Most adult Americans fail to use corrective lenses and don't get regular eye exams, therefore leaving their eyes at great risk.
The danger is that the majority of individuals are not informed that vision threatening conditions like glaucoma and macular degeneration are often a-symptomatic and without a comprehensive exam are frequently diagnoses only after it's too advanced.
Early eye disease screening should be a priority. Make sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local eye doctor to maintain your vision and eye health for years to come.
