Celebrate healthy vision during #GlaucomaAwarenessMonth by educating yourself and others about this potentially blinding disease that has no early warning signs. According to National Eye Health Education Program (NEHEP), approximately 50% of people suffering from glaucoma are not aware that they have it. More than 3 million people in the U.S. currently have glaucoma, and that number is projected to increase to 4.2 million by 2030.
