What Is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma occurs when the pressure in your eyes is abnormally high, which can cause damage to your optic nerve. Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 60. While the condition can occur at any age, it is most common in older adults.
To be sure that your eyes are healthy and that the pressure in your eye is not high, you should make an appointment with Lakeside Eye Associates in Huntersville. Our doctors of optometry will perform tests to ensure that your eyes are healthy and free of disease.
