Our vision is important to our everyday life and, unfortunately, it’s something that’s very hard to regain once lost. That’s why it is essential to recognize and treat eye disorders early on, before irreversible damage occurs. Glaucoma is an eye disorder that affects about 2.2 million people in the United States. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, this number is expected to increase to 3.3 million by 2020. But because few know how to recognize it, about half of those who have it do not even know.
If you wear contacts or glasses, you know the issues and annoyances associated with them. You’ve probably fumbled for your glasses or excused yourself when a contact lens wasn’t being agreeable. If you’re tired of these everyday nuisances, it may be time to consider laser eye surgery.
