The experienced ophthalmologists at University of Mississippi Medical Center offer comprehensive treatment for glaucoma - a disease of the optic nerve, the part of the eye that carries images to the brain. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the United States, especially for the elderly. People ages 64 or older should be screened for glaucoma annually. Those with a family history or other risk factors should be screened for glaucoma more often and at a younger age.
