Does Marijuana Help Treat Glaucoma or Other Eye Conditions? January Is Glaucoma Awareness Month
Both supermodel Christie Brinkley and Bono, the lead singer of U2, were diagnosed with glaucoma during routine eye exams. Both were also surprised by the diagnosis since they weren’t experiencing problems with their vision. That’s the sinister nature of glaucoma, one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide: People with glaucoma can lose most of their vision before they experience symptoms. Once vision is lost, it cannot be regained. That’s why Safe Vision Texas and the American Academy of Ophthalmology are urging people over age 40 to get regular eye screenings to protect their good vision.
