Glaucoma - The Silent Thief of Sight

glaucoma_thiefAnd you thought Gauteng's crime was bad - be warned, Glaucoma is the silent thief of sight...

• It is painless and symptoms appear very slowly almost without you noticing.

• As many as 2 million South Africans are unaware of the fact that they are suffering from Glaucoma, are you one of them?

• In addition, the common “puff test” has been shown to miss the disease in one third of patients who have glaucoma.

• The statistics are more and more alarming and every single adult, or offspring of a glaucoma patient, should embark on regular and routine glaucoma screening.


• Vision Optometrists have invested in the world’s newest and most accurate Glaucoma screening machine – the Zeiss Gdx™ polametry laser.

• The Zeiss Gdx™ exam is safe and comfortable and takes 3 minutes or less.

• This significant diagnostic breakthrough has been found to provide precise, accurate information to help diagnose glaucoma earlier.

• This will help us start treatment before any vision loss occurs, making Glaucoma damage avoidable.
