What is Glaucoma and how will it affect your life?

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve. The nerve carries information to the brain and when the nerve is damaged you can lose your vision. Glaucoma can affect your life in many ways such as:

  • Trying to drive
  • Doing certain sports
  • Harder to see
  • Having to take more medication
  • Possibly more physical activity to get your mind of the fact you have a hard disease to live with.
