Health Tip: Preventing Glaucoma

(HealthDay News) -- Certain ethnic groups, the elderly and people who have family members with glaucoma are at a higher risk than others for the eye disease, says the Glaucoma Research Foundation.

To help prevent glaucoma, the foundation recommends:

  • Schedule regular eye exams.

  • Wear protective eyewear when necessary.

  • Exercise regularly.

Vision loss from glaucoma can be silent, slow and progressive. However, a timely diagnosis and prompt treatment can prevent irreversible damage.
