How can you prevent glaucoma?

Glaucoma, a disease of the eye caused by damage to the optic nerve, cannot be definitively prevented. However, with proper treatment and early diagnosis, many of the more severe side effects can be avoided. In addition, exercise has been shown to have a positive impact on an individual’s intraocular pressure and thereby the likelihood of developing glaucoma. Regular eye checks are still the best preventative measure one can take if you are concerned about glaucoma.
