Sacopee Valley Eye Care
JANUARY IS NATIONAL GLAUCOMA AWARENESS MONTH
Nearly 3 million Americans have glaucoma, a disease in which the nerve fibers suffer damage, causing it to be the second leading cause of blindness in the world. Often progressing silently, with no symptoms, it is estimated that another 2 million people have the disease and don’t know it. With glaucoma, by the time a problem is noticed, permanent vision damage has already occurred. The good news is that with early detection and treatment, blindness may be prevented.
Medicare provides coverage for an annual glaucoma screening for beneficiaries who fall into one of the following high risk groups:
• Individuals with diabetes mellitus
• Individuals with a family history of glaucoma
• African-Americans age 50 and older
• Hispanic-Americans age 65 and older
This benefit is available all year long and is available every 12 months as long as you meet one of the criteria listed above.
If you do not meet the listed criteria or do not have Medicare, you can still be checked for glaucoma. A comprehensive eye exam includes testing for glaucoma. If you have not had an eye exam in the past 2 years (or have never had an eye exam) it is highly recommended to be checked for this “sneak thief” of sight.
All patient's can save 20% on a second complete pair of glasses!
