Preventing Glaucoma-Related BlindnessRegular eye check-ups can help in preventing glaucoma-related blindness. With glaucoma, many individuals are unaware that they are losing their vision. Seeing an eye doctor every year can help you identify the problem early and prevent blindness. Neglecting the importance of eye health can have pernicious consequences.
“Eyesight or human vision is one of the most important senses. As much as 80 percent of what we feel comes through our sense of sight. By protecting the eyes, people will reduce the chance of blindness and vision loss while also staying on top of any developing eye diseases, such as glaucoma and cataracts.
“A healthy brain function requires a healthy vision. The brain is our most essential organ, and it allows us to control other organs. Normal and healthy vision contributes to improved learning and comprehension for a better quality of life,” says Dr. Daniel Laroche, director of Glaucoma Services and president of Advanced Eyecare of New York.
Please reach out to San Diego Center for the Blind to learn more about how we can help you with vision loss or blindness.
