Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the world. The most common form, open angle glaucoma, usually appears without symptoms, causing progressive vision loss. It can lead to irreversible blindness if left untreated. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial to managing glaucoma. As there are usually no warning signs of glaucoma, you should have regular eye examinations for early detection. By age 40, you should get checked for glaucoma every two to three years.
