Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve that can cause complete loss of vision if left untreated. In the United States, glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness, especially among older men and women. Simply put, glaucoma is caused by a build-up of excess fluid in the eye. When this clear liquid is blocked and cannot flow out of the eye, pressure in the eye increases to the point where the optic nerve can become permanently damaged. The optic nerve is responsible for sending images to the brain, and if the nerve is significantly impaired, partial or total loss of vision can occur.

With regular medical exams, glaucoma can be detected early on and treated to prevent vision loss. At Vision Eye Care, we offer glaucoma screenings, as well as both non-surgical and surgical glaucoma treatment. To prevent loss of sight from glaucoma, contact Vision Eye Care at 269-343-0377 to schedule a comprehensive examination with our specialists.
