January is Glaucoma awareness month, and knowing the warning signs could save your eyesight. Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness. If you have high pressure in your eye, your risk of Glaucoma increases. The older you are, the higher chances of developing the disease, but underlying conditions also contribute. Those include heart disease, high blood pressure, and a family history of Glaucoma. During the month of January, Health Reporter Linnea Allen will interview doctors and patients about the warning signs, and the treatment of Glaucoma. One thing doctors do know is that regular checkups matter because early detection is the key in preventing and overcoming Glaucoma.
