Some ophthalmology organizations and practices say “Glaucoma Month” is March while others say it is January. The beauty of it is, “Glaucoma Day” can be any day of the year for you. And, ask your eye doctor, but scheduling an annual glaucoma exam in advance on (approximately) the same day every year may be just the thing to do.

Unlike some vision conditions such as blurriness, increasing glare of lights at night, dry eye, etc., glaucoma may not be noticeable by any symptoms at an early stage, and so it’s better for your eye doctor to detect it sooner and begin treatment earlier than later.
