Glaucoma Awareness Month

As January is Glaucoma Awareness Month we are reminded how important it is for periodic testing of this potential eyesight losing disease. This is especially true for those who are at higher risk of getting the disease. Those who are at greater risk include African Americans over the age of 40, anyone (especially Mexican Americans) over the age of 60 and if it runs on one’s family.

In Glaucoma’s early stages there may be no symptoms or signs, yet it may begin to have an affect the could lead to slowly losing one’s vision. If it remains untreated, a person may begin to miss objects to the side of their eyesight or out of the corner of their eye. Eyesight may begin to look like looking through a tunnel, and over time straight ahead vision may decrease until no vision remains.

At the Society we see too many people with Glaucoma that could have been prevented, or treated to reduce it’s impact on vision. Please get tested at your next doctor’s appointment.

Happy New Year

As the New Year arrives and we all look forward to a great 2018 I am touched by the wishes we received during the holiday season from individuals whose lives we have Enhanced, Empowered and Enriched. As one person said to us, “Thanks for all you do, always being there all year. Blessings in this New Year.”

We are indeed blessed to have so many wonderful staff who make such a difference in so many lives!
