Is there any history of blindness in your family? You may have glaucoma. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of adult blindness. It is a condition that causes damage to the eye nerve. If you are over age 40 and have a family history of glaucoma, you should have a complete eye examination with an eye doctor every one to two years. In our eye department we offer modern surgical techniques like Ex-press mini shunt implantation and Ahmed glaucoma valve implantation to our patients.
