No prevention: Is known for glaucoma. If you are concerned about glaucoma, then see an ophthalmologist (eye md) annually for a complete examination. We can detect glaucoma before any vision is lost.

My doctor says I have very early signs of glaucoma. Anything I can do to prevent it from progressing?

Yes: Treatment prevents progression in most cases. Suspected glaucoma can be safely watched to make sure it does progress.
