Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the eye’s optic nerve. It is often called ‘the sneak thief of sight’ because there are usually no warning signs or symptoms until noticeable vision loss.


At Mount Greenwood Eye Professionals, we strongly urge our patients to schedule routine eye exams so that diseases such as glaucoma can be detected in their earliest stages, when they are most manageable. By the time glaucoma exhibits clear symptoms, irreversible advanced damage has already been done.
