During Glaucoma Awareness Month in January, the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) is reminding the public that early detection and treatment, and some lifestyle choices can help protect sight. AAO recommends that everyone should have a comprehensive eye exam at age 40. Individuals at greater risk for developing glaucoma include people: 

  • over age 40
  • of African, Asian or Hispanic heritage
  • who have high eye pressure detected during an eye exam
  • who are farsighted or nearsighted
  • who have experienced eye trauma or eye injury
  • whose corneas are thin in the center
