Factores de riesgo del glaucoma
En la Semana del Glaucoma, es importante tener en cuenta cuáles son los principales factores de riesgo de esta enfermedad y, más importante aún, saber que la única manera de diagnoticarla a tiempo y adelantar un tratamiento para prevenir la ceguera causada por el glaucoma, es teniendo controles regulares con un médico oftalmólogo.

Don’t Let Glaucoma Darken Your World
Glaucoma restricts your field of vision. Slowly, the patient sees narrower and narrower. At the onset of glaucoma, the patient usually will not notice any symptoms. Without treatment, the disease will eventually cause blindness. Glaucoma can afflict everyone. However, the risk is much greater in people over the age of 60 or with family history of glaucoma. Early detection and treatment can halt or slow down visual loss.
