Glaucoma Prevention

Prevention

There are no guidelines for preventing glaucoma. Early detection and treatment of glaucoma, before it causes major vision loss, is the best way to control the disease. Since vision loss is gradual and begins only in peripheral vision, most patients don't notice any visual changes until significant damage has been done. Everybody should have regular eye examinations, including having your pupils dilated. This is especially important if you are at high risk for glaucoma.
