It may be Glaucoma!
 

 

Glaucoma is an eye disease that damages the optic nerve leading to reduced vision or even blindness. Glaucoma is a very common cause of blindness affecting three million Americans yearly.

Half of the people with Glaucoma do not even know. Glaucoma usually destroys eyesight without any pain or symptoms. By the time any changes in vision are noted permanent visual loss may have occurred. Early detection and treatment may prevent significant loss of sight.

If you experience any of the following symptoms, you should be examined for glaucoma or other eye problems: frequent changes in eyeglasses, difficulty adjusting your eyes in darkened rooms, loss of vision, blurred or foggy vision, and/or rainbow colored rings around lights.

Remember: don't wait for symptoms to appear before seeking regular eye care. Regular eye exams are the most important thing you can do to detect glaucoma.
