PR9.NET January 04, 2012 - Portland, Maine - Prevent Blindness America has designated January as National Glaucoma Awareness Month. In African-American and Hispanic populations, Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness. "The advances in our ability to diagnose Glaucoma with the high technology imaging instrumentation we have brought to Maine has certainly given our patients access to better glaucoma screening and diagnosis methods and thus earlier detection-a key to maintaining eye health and vision," stated Glaucoma Specialist Samuel Solish, M.D. of Eyecare Medical Group. "Earlier detection and diagnosis gives patients the best range of glaucoma treatment options whether it be using eye drops, laser treatment or if necessary even glaucoma surgery," said Glaucoma Specialist Robert Daly, M.D. "Our goal for 2012 is to really raise awareness about the importance of regular eye examinations to preserve vision especially for our aging population. We especially recommend that siblings of Glaucoma patients and Glaucoma suspects be screened for Glaucoma, each and every year," said Dr. Solish.
