Dr. Rajesh Shetty appeared on First Coast News with 22-year-old Ivey Branaum, who was diagnosed with glaucoma when she was just 18. Although glaucoma is most common in people 60 and older, this rare case could have left Ivey blind if it hadn’t been for a routine eye exam.

January is Glaucoma Awareness Month, so Dr. Shetty appeared on First Coast News with Ivey Branaum to shed some light on this condition and help encourage people who may have a family history of glaucoma to make sure they are getting regular eye exams. The segment aired on January 27, 2016.
