The Glaucoma Guidebook

Expert Advice on Maintaining Healthy Vision

An easy-to-read yet thorough guide to understanding and managing glaucoma and taking care of your vision.

When you receive a glaucoma diagnosis, knowing where to turn and how to understand treatment options can be overwhelming. Fifty percent of people with glaucoma do not even know they have the disease, and those who do may still struggle with managing it. If left untreated, glaucoma can lead to irreversible blindness.

The Glaucoma Guidebook is an invaluable resource for anyone living with glaucoma and for those who are at high risk of developing the disease. Dr. Constance Okeke, an expert with over 20 years of experience helping thousands of patients see better, provides the critical advice and best practices needed to take control of your vision. In simple, accessible language, the book explains:

• What glaucoma is, including early symptoms
• What causes increased eye pressure
• Treatment options
• How to prevent blindness
• How to become an advocate for your own eye health

If you have been recently diagnosed with glaucoma or are struggling with managing your glaucoma, this is the book for you. With over 50 color images and illustrations and easy-to-follow advice from both Dr. Okeke and actual glaucoma patients, this book will not only serve as a guide for those with glaucoma but also provide invaluable information for family members, caregivers, eyecare providers, and educators.
