January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month, and Kirk Eye Center would like to take this opportunity to provide you with some basic information about this serious vision condition. Check out our infographic below to learn more about glaucoma, including risk factors, types of glaucoma and more.

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States, largely due to the fact that there are often no symptoms until you start experiencing irreversible vision loss. Make sure you avoid vision loss from glaucoma by scheduling an eye exam every year. Early treatment is the best way to preserve your vision.

Please contact Kirk Eye Center using the form on this page or call 970-669-1107 today to schedule an eye exam and glaucoma screening. We serve patients in Loveland, Fort Collins and throughout Northern Colorado.
