“At Eyecare Medical Group in Portland, Maine, January represents the time we pay particular attention to getting the word out reminding patients to take advantage of the advances in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma as this sight stealing eye disease is a leading cause of preventable blindness,” commented Clement Berry, Chief Executive Officer of Eyecare Medical Group. 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. “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.
