Unfortunately, over than three million Americans suffer from glaucoma, the main source of vision loss but only half of them realize this. Often nicknamed ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can strike absent of forewarning. The majority of adult Americans don't use corrective lenses and don't schedule comprehensive eye exams, therefore leaving their eyes at great risk.

The problem is that most Americans are not informed that sight-stealing diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration are often a-symptomatic and without a comprehensive exam are frequently found only when it's too advanced.

Early eye disease screening should be a priority. Be sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local eye doctor to maintain your vision and eye health for years to come.
