Our Focus is Your Vision
 
Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve.  It is most often a slowly progressing loss of sight that is not detected by the patient until it has reached advanced stages.  The loss of vision begins in the peripheral visual field and only affects the central clear vision in its advanced stages.  Because there are no signs or symptoms for the patient to detect, glaucoma is almost always found by an eye doctor during a thorough eye exam.
