January is Glaucoma Awareness Month
As the New Year begins, it’s a great time for people across the state of Wisconsin to make a resolution to protect themselves from the “sneak thief of sight,” also known as glaucoma. Despite it being the second leading cause of blindness in the U.S., affecting over 3 million Americans, public understanding of glaucoma is limited. Because this extremely detrimental disease frequently attacks a person’s eyesight without early onset symptoms, many that are affected remain unaware they even have glaucoma.
