B.I.G (Beat Invisible Glaucoma)

April 2, 2018 | Mitch Hancock

Glaucoma is a disease name that encompasses a group of eye diseases which cause the optic nerve at the back of the eye to be slowly destroyed and results in permanent vision loss. Glaucoma is commonly known as the invisible disease as it can be slowly damaging your optic nerve with no obvious symptoms. Unfortunately, there is no cure, but if detected early enough, medication can arrest or reduce the disease process. Over 300,000 Australians have Glaucoma and close relatives have an increased risk of also having the condition. Others at a higher risk of Glaucoma include people with diabetes, migraine sufferers, people who are long or short sighted, high blood pressure sufferers or those who take cortisone steroids.

So if you have Glaucoma talk to your family about Glaucoma and encourage them to have regular eye examination.
