From Roberts Eyecare
Why should I be concerned about glaucoma if my vision is fine?
The most common types of glaucoma involve a slowly progressing destruction of the Optic Nerve of the eye. In general, it initially affects peripheral vision in a way that isn’t noticeable without specialized testing. A person with glaucoma will usually be in the advanced stages before noticing any problems with vision. With special testing glaucoma is usually easy to detect in the early stages and it is treatable with eye drops. In some cases surgery may be required if eye drops do not adequately control the glaucoma.
What are the different types of hearing loss?
Conductive hearing loss occurs from loss of sound sensitivity resulting from abnormalities of the middle and/or outer ear. This type of loss is common in children with ear infections; once the infection has cleared up, the hearing is usually restored. Sensorineural hearing loss results from abnormalities in the inner ear and/or nerve paths to the brain. The auditory cells and nerve are permanently damaged. This is the type of hearing loss often referred to as “nerve deafness.” Mixed hearing losses are those that have symptoms of both conductive and sensorineural hearing losses.
