What is the biggest obstacle to Glaucoma Treatment?
Current methods of measuring eye pressure only give doctors one data point in time, for a few seconds every 3 to 6 months, which prevents them from fully understanding a patient's condition. A 2015 study* reported after 20 years of Glaucoma damage, 38.1% of patients were blind in one eye and 13.5% of patients were blind in both eyes.
