Glaucoma: You Have Questions; We Have Answers
I feel like it's all on my shoulders.
How am I going to take care of my parents if they develop an eye disease like glaucoma?
Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in African Americans and Hispanics in the United States.
And, what about my kids, will they inherit it?
…not to mention my risk factor.
I'm really concerned; and I need some answers.
