More than 90 percent of people diagnosed with glaucoma today will retain useful vision (blindness is rare).
In certain cases however, it may not be possible to control the glaucoma well enough to retain useful vision. This is often where the condition has been diagnosed at the late stage, treatments have been ineffective, or where the person with glaucoma has had difficulty taking the prescribed medications.
If your vision has deteriorated to an extent where you have difficulty carrying out normal daily tasks, much can be done to help you to use your remaining vision effectively. You should contact your ophthalmologist to find out about low vision aids.
