Your Eyes & Vision

Expert advice about your Eyes and Vision from the experts at Cleveland Eye Specialists

Meet Dr. Mark Pophal
Our Expert from Cleveland Eye Specialists

Did you know that Glaucoma is often called the "sneak thief of sight" because it slowly robs people of their vision OFTEN WITHOUT SYMPTOMS? And, that half of those who have glaucoma don't know it? Once vision is lost to glaucoma, it cannot be restored. The good news is that with early detection and treatment, vision loss can be lessened.
