January is Glaucoma Awareness Month

Save Your Eyes, January is Glaucoma Awareness Month

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that gradually steal sight without warning. Once vision is lost, it is permanently gone.

  • 2.2 Million Americans have glaucoma
  • 50% do not know they have it

Glaucoma accounts for: 

  • 9 to 12 percent of all cases of blindness in the United States
  • $1.5 billion annual costs to U.S. government 
  • 10 million visits to physicians each year

By visiting BluMine Health Clinic or your optometrist for an annual eye appointment, you can earn credit toward your quarterly Employee Wellness Program incentive - and you can save your eyes
