These days, World Glaucoma Week is being celebrated, and Croco Doc wants to tell you a little bit about this disease that can affect your vision and lead to blindness if not treated properly.

Glaucoma is a disease that damages the optic nerve of the eye and is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide. It can be difficult to detect early, as it doesn’t present symptoms in the beginning. That’s why it’s important for people to get regular eye exams, especially if they have a family history of glaucoma. Early treatment is the key to preventing blindness.

There are some things we can do to reduce the risk of developing glaucoma. For example, maintaining a healthy diet and regularly exercising can help reduce intraocular pressure. Additionally, it’s important to protect your eyes from injuries, as eye injuries can increase the risk of glaucoma.

Don’t forget to take care of your eyes and maintain good eye health!
