Glaucoma is one of the most complex and interesting diseases that eye care providers diagnose and treat.  Besides not having any symptoms in the vast majority of cases, early Glaucoma is difficult to detect.  I use technology such as my Retinal Thickness Analyzer to perform the Vision Wellness Exam which helps detect glaucoma much earlier in the disease process than waiting for optic nerve damage to the extent that it is detectable with typical exam techniques.

Here is a great article from the Glaucoma Research Foundation for you to review about Glaucoma.  The only way to diagnose Glaucoma is a comprehensive eye examination, which is why regular eye care is so important, even if your vision is excellent.  If you are overdue for an eye exam, you can request one from this link, or call my office at 262-752-2020.
