Q:
Any information about glaucoma awareness month?

A:
January is the glaucoma awareness month. During January, people will not only disseminate knowledge about this disease, they will also give comforts to people who are suffering from it.

Glaucoma is called “the sneak thief of sight”, because some people with the disease may lose sight without any symptoms, and once they lose sight, it is difficult for them to regain eyesight.

A study from National Eye Institute shows that more than 3 million people in the United States are suffering from glaucoma. And by 2030, the number will increase to 4.2 million.
