January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month. On this program, optometrist Dr. John Bonsett-Veal discusses glaucoma, often referred to as the “sneak thief of sight,” and how early detection is critical to help preserve vision. He also describes other common and potentially debilitating eye conditions including macular degeneration, cataracts, and dry eyes that can compromise our ability to see the beauty of the world around us.
