Vision loss could affect nearly every aspect of a patient’s life, interfering with work obligations and causing difficulty with everyday tasks. One of the diseases that can cause vision loss, glaucoma, is often not recognized by patients until the disease has progressed to an advanced stage. Regular eye exams are vital for early detection and treatment of this condition.
