It is caused by the fluid in the eye putting pressure on the optic nerve causing damage to your sight. Left undetected Glaucoma can cause blindness. Is Glaucoma Permanent? Unfortunately any sight that is lost due to Glaucoma cannot be regained. The damage done to the optic nerve by Glaucoma cannot be repaired however once Glaucoma is detected it can be treated and the condition may not get any worse than it is at the time treatment commences. Are there different types of Glaucoma? There are several different types of Glaucoma. There is Acute Glaucoma which happens rapidly and the eye becomes red and very painful. Vision becomes hazy. Chronic Glaucoma is caused when pressure in the eye slowly builds up over a long period of time. Permanent vision loss can be caused before a person even notices that they have Chronic Glaucoma. Secondary Glaucoma is caused by a secondary cause such as an injury or tumour near the optic nerve. How can I find out if I have Glaucoma before any major damage happens? Your optometrist will test your eyes for glaucoma during your regular eye examinations. Glaucoma is one of the many reasons you should have your eyes tested every two years. If your optometrist detects any sign of Glaucoma or any other health issues during your examination he will refer you to your GP or an ophthalmologist. Who is at risk of Glaucoma? Anyone can develop Glaucoma but those over 40 are at a higher risk. If someone in your family already has Glaucoma you are also more at risk. Approximately 2% of people over 40 have Glaucoma. It is essential to look after your eye health. What do I do now? If you have worries about your eye health you need to see your optometrist. You must also remember to always have your two yearly eye tests but should you have any concerns between appointments do not hesitate to come in and see our friendly and well trained staff or call us on (06) 378 7672 to discuss your worries. Dining secret is out Tasty: One of a number of delicious meals on the menu at The Masterton Motor Lodge. Known as the best kept secret in dining in Wairarapa, the Masterton Motor Lodge on High Street South has great food and plenty of it. Owner Danielle Fraser says their chef Peter Wald has done great things for their restaurant and word is getting around. ''We've had excellent feedback. Peter is an excellent chef and since he's been on board we have noticed that the restaurant is taking off,'' she says. Peter makes sure that all the ingredients are top quality, the meals are cooked perfectly and the plates are full. He prepares some of the best fish and chips in Wairarapa and the prime angus scotch fillets from Hawke's Bay are consistently awesome. Masterton Motor Lodge has traditionally catered to corporate guests and travellers and the restaurant has always strived to offer them great food and service. With such a good facility that has recently been remodelled diners frequently remark on the excellent value. A quick search through travel advisory websites such as Trip Advisor and you will quickly find many positive reviews on the Motor Lodge and its restaurant. Danielle says travellers are looking for a good meal after a busy day and they go out of their way to make sure they get it. For these reasons casual diners are choosing their restaurant too. One diner remarked: ''Very pleasant staff. Great restaurant meals at very good prices. Our mains were huge -- so definitely left feeling very full. Very clean and funky atmosphere. Excellent value -- would definitely go back there again.'' Carolyn, Masterton. Church home to Whatman ' We've really felt that God gave us this vision of coming home to Whatman and taking down the three little interior walls and making it just one room. ' Jessica Bishop The new ministers at The Salvation Army in Masterton are bringing the church home to the Cecelia Whatman building and inviting the community to see what they have done with the place. Daryn and Jessica Bishop have taken over the Masterton Ministry this year and they feel God wants them to bring the church to the Ngaumutawa Rd headquarters. We've really felt that God gave us this vision of coming home to Whatman and taking down the three little interior walls and mak- ing it just one room,'' Jessica says. Portable'' church services were being held on Sundays in the Lakeview School hall, but the mobile arrangements were less than satisfactory in many ways. Whatman was formerly a boys home, then belonged to The Sal- vation Army and later housed an early childhood centre. The offices have remained there and they also hold training there. Daryn and Jessica and the team have removed some internal walls and refurbished the area to make space to hold services. The Free Family Fun Day on Sunday will have sausage sizzles, bouncy castles, animal balloons, bubbles, and people are invited to walk through and have a nosy''. They want the community to know that Salvation Army is more than just the Family Store -- they are a vibrant and active church which is busy in the area. The Family Open Day is on Sunday from 10am till noon at 132 Ngaumutawa Rd.
