This week is World Glaucoma Awareness Week. As providers of vision solutions here at Slade and Baker Vision we want to assist in shedding light on this disease.
Glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable irreversible blindness worldwide. That means it is the main reason that people who don’t need to go blind, go blind.
We see so many patients who are struggling not just with cataracts, but also glaucoma, which does always complicate outcomes for vision surgery – we have to go through all of the issues that this disease causes with each patient so we know this intimately.
Quick diagnosis and treatment can prevent vision impairment, but so many people are not even aware they even have glaucoma, and they may not even have the right access to the necessary care and treatments.
Glaucoma numbers are expected to grow exponentially which makes this a growing public health concern which needs more attention! We want to do our part.
We hope that by driving eyes to this topic, and making sure patients have annual eye exams, stay on top of their eye health and get treatment immediately upon diagnosis, we are sharing in the commitment to improving glaucoma care for patients in Texas and everywhere!
If you need an eye exam or have not had one in more than a year, please don’t hesitate to call us at 713-626-5544 or write us at email@example.com we look forward to helping you!
