Regardless of your age or physical health, it's important to have regular eye and vision examinations. Think of a yearly eye examination as a "physical" for your eyes, and an important part of preventative healthcare. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms, so you might not know a problem exists.
Glaucoma refers to a group of eye diseases that lead to progressive damage to the optic nerve, which carries visual information from the back of the eye to the brain. Early glaucoma usually has no symptoms, therefore, routine eye exams are critical in the detection and treatment of the disease.
Early detection and treatment provide the very best opportunity to correct vision problems so your child can learn to see clearly. Make sure your child has the best possible tools to learn successfully.
