January is Glaucoma Awareness Month, and while you’re crossing your T’s and dotting your I’s (wink wink) on those New Year’s Resolutions, consider completing the Glaucoma Eye Q Test from PreventBlindness.Org . The site contains a list of several downloadable and printable fact sheets, including Common Eye Myths and tips for finding and visiting with an eye care doctor. The National Eye Health Education Program (NEHEP) encourages people to add a dilated eye exam to your list and help prevent vision loss from a disease that often has no symptoms in the early stages. NEHEP también tiene información en español (the NEHEP also provides information in Spanish).
