Did you know that January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month?
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the U.S. It most often occurs in adults and elders over age 40. People with a family history of glaucoma, African Americans over the age of 40, and Hispanics over the age of 60 are at an increased risk of developing glaucoma. Other risk factors include thinner corneas, chronic eye inflammation, and using medications that increase the pressure in the eyes.
Though there aren't any cures for Glaucoma, there are an array of treatments that can slow, and treat the painful side effects of this illness. A-1 Home Care encourages seniors to consult their doctors regarding these medical options.
