HEALTHCARE CALIFORNIA SUPPORTS NATIONAL GLAUCOMA AWARENESS MONTH

HealthCare California is joining the nation's health providers in recognizing January as National Glaucoma Awareness Month.

Currently, more than 2.7 million people in the United States over age 40 have glaucoma.  The National Eye Institute projects this number will reach 4.2 million by 2030, a 58 percent increase.  Glaucoma is the leading cause of preventable blindness.  Moreover, among African American and Hispanic populations, glaucoma is more prevalent. Glaucoma is six to eight times more common in African Americans than Caucasians.

In commenting on the National Glaucoma Awareness Month, Devin S. Nugent, Chief Executive Officer of HealthCare California, stated:

HealthCare California's team of highly trained health care professionals help our patients with vision problems such as glaucoma regain dignity, trust and self-confidence in their home environment.  Home safety evaluations, adaptive techniques for daily living and fall prevention strategies are just some of the services we provide to assist our glaucoma patient population.
