Healthy Living: New Treatment For Glaucoma

More than 2 million Americans have glaucoma, but only half know it. Untreated, it can cause blindness. 

In the past, glaucoma sufferers either had to undergo risky surgery or use daily eye drops to help manage this incurable disease.  
Now, a new implant is helping to eliminate the need for either.  
Even with the iStent surgery, glaucoma is not curable, and vision lost cannot be regained.  

However, with medication and/or surgery, it is possible to halt further loss of vision.
