Recognizing and treating glaucoma

According to the Glaucoma Research Foundation, half of people affected by glaucoma do not even realize they have it. This is because, in the early stages of the disease, there are virtually no symptoms. In general, glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that gradually cause people to go blind. While there is no cure at this time, regular visits to your eye doctor and medication or surgery can slow or prevent vision loss. That’s why it’s important to use your True Care eye care plan to find a great eye care practitioner and be vigilant about this serious condition.

While everyone is at risk for glaucoma, some groups of people are more at risk than others. The Glaucoma Research Foundation lists African Americans, people over the age of 60, older Hispanics, Asians, steroid users, and eye-injury patients as the most susceptible groups. Other people at risk include those who have family members with glaucoma, and people who have hypertension or diabetes. If you consider yourself a member of one of these groups, it’s important to get a complete eye exam, including eye dilation, every year or two. Look at your True Care benefit plan to find great discounts on an eye doctor who meets your needs.

"I finally found something that really helps! The first week I received the Advantage Card, I saved $418 on Dental expenses. That was money I would have had to pay out of my own pocket."
- J. Britt, Orlando, FL

"I just want to say thanks for having this service for those that cannot afford dental insurance. I have noticed the savings since the very first time I used it, and I've never even heard of Discount Dental Plans before. I was so pleased with the company I called in to see what other programs they offer and signed up for coverage on Medical and Chiropractic as well!"
-Kevin, Philadelphia, PA

"The free prescription drug card is such an added bonus. I'm on a maintenance drug that used to cost me $107.67 every three months. After receiving my free discount drug card it now costs just $43.42. This is an annual saving of $257, which is even more than the entire plan cost. What a great free bonus to go along with my dental plan."
-Hassan, Sacramento, CA
