  • "Glaucoma is an eye disease that gradually steals sight with few if any symptoms, and for African Americans, it is the leading cause of vision loss. Glaucoma can be treated if caught in time, but once vision is lost, restoration is impossible. In this program, we take a look at warning signs and risk factors.

  • "It's a chronic condition described as the "sneak thief in the night". Glaucoma gradually steals vision, often without warning. And by the time many people notice they're losing part of their field of vision, it's often too late, and the damage cannot be undone. The tragedy is that blindness due to glaucoma is preventable. In this program, we'll see how medical science has improved the effectiveness of treatments. But patients have to take the initial step and find a qualified ophthalmologist."@en
