Adult Glaucoma Suspect (cont.)

When to Seek Medical Care

Because of the lack of symptoms associated with glaucoma, regular eye examinations with an ophthalmologist are extremely important if you are glaucoma suspect and at high risk.

If glaucoma is already present in one eye, the other eye is at an increased risk of future damage. In about 29% of untreated undamaged fellow eyes, vision loss occurs in an average of 5 years.
