Glaucoma Awareness Month/ A-1 Home Care Fullerton

Did you know that January is Glaucoma Awareness Month? As part of our effort to expose our readers to the latest health news, A-1 Home Care will be discussing glaucoma in support of this month. 

Glaucoma is an umbrella term for a group of disorders in which the pressure in the eye becomes too great for the health of the optic nerve. Because of this increased pressure, vision becomes severely impeded, increasing in severity, and resulting in reduced vision and even blindness in adult and elder sufferers. 

Although there is no "cure" for glaucoma, treatment can be highly effective and may prevent individuals from losing any vision. People who benefit from routine glaucoma screening are those at "high-risk", including people with:
  • African ancestry
  • Family history of glaucoma
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Near-sightedness (myopia)
  • Chronic corticosteroid use
  • History of serious eye injury   
A-1 Home Care can arrange for a compassionate, friendly caregiver to provide emotional assistance for elders with glaucoma recieving treatments or  surgery.
 We provide care in  Fullerton, Downey, Norwalk, Long Beach, Lakewood, La Mirada, Cerrittos and other cities of Los Angeles County and Orange County.
