- Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the eye’s optic nerve. It can cause vision loss and even blindness if not detected early.
- The most common form of glaucoma progresses slowly over a long period of time without the person noticing vision loss until the disease is very advanced.
- Public health professionals can work in community-based settings to increase glaucoma detection rates by reaching people at high risk, including African Americans, seniors, and people with diabetes.
