January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month

Prevent Blindness America has designated January 2011 as National Glaucoma Awareness Month.  This is an important time to spread the word about this sight-stealing disease.  Our understanding of this disease, along with the ways in which we can diagnose and treat it, have improved considerably.

The key to successful treatment of glaucoma is early detection and intervention.  Please share this information with friends, and especially with relative, if you have glaucoma as the family predisposition toward getting glaucoma has been demonstrated to be pretty strong.

At our three offices in Lancaster, Acton, and Gardner, Massachusetts we are pleased to be able to offer the full scope of glaucoma diagnosis and treatment through our eye doctors.  Patients at D'Ambrosio Eye Care should feel particularly confident as Bin (Benjamin) Wu, M.D. is a fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist who can attend to even the most complex glaucoma problems and needs.
