Getting glaucoma screenings/testing is extremely important. Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that causes damage to the optic nerve which causes loss of vision. Usually it is the abnormally high pressure inside the eye that causes the damage. Glaucoma can happen gradually so you might not even have any symptoms until the disease is in its advanced stage. The most common type of glaucoma, primary-open angle glaucoma, has no noticeable signs or symptoms. Since glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness, an early diagnosis is critical. Because it is so serious, you need to get screened by an expert. Our Bethesda Glaucoma Specialists
at Fulton Eye Care Center are experts in glaucoma testing and treatment.

at Fulton Eye Care Center.
