HOW IS GLAUCOMA TREATED?
Early on, there are no noticeable symptoms, vision remains unchanged and there is no associated pain, so it’s very common for glaucoma to go unnoticed. However, early detection and appropriate follow up, glaucoma can be managed very effectively. Glaucoma cannot be cured and any vision loss is irreversible. Early treatment can help stop the progression of glaucoma and prevent blindness.
