January is Glaucoma Awareness Month

Posted on January 19, 2012


January is Glaucoma Awareness Month, and the American Academy of Ophthalmology and EyeCare America are urging people to learn about and take steps to protect themselves from this potentially blinding disease. Through EyeCare America, thousands of volunteer ophthalmologists throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico are providing free eye exams at no out-of-pocket cost to eligible participants.
