A glaucoma diagnosis can be a scary and uncertain time. By working with your doctor, you can create a treatment plan to stabilize the disease and prevent vision loss.

A major factor in the treatment of your glaucoma is you. Along with being consistent with your regular exams and treatments, a healthy lifestyle can aid in protecting your vision.

Protecting your vision starts with YOU
