As the second leading cause of blindness behind only cataracts, glaucoma is a serious condition which can completely rob a person of one of their main senses. Gradually being robbed of your ability to see is one of the most dreaded experiences that we face as human beings. Canadian Disability Benefits provides you with decades of experience in the tax and financial fields in order to get you the Canadian Disability Benefits that you deserve.
What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a degenerative eye condition in which a person gradually loses their field of vision, generally beginning with the peripheral vision. Without proper treatment, glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness and can lead to severe depression as the person gradually watches themselves be cut off from the visual world. The Canadian Disability Tax Credit program can provide you with up to $35,000 per claim in order to help with both your medical treatment and any home improvements you may require in order to continue living your normal life in spite of your disability.
Symptoms of Glaucoma
An increase of intraocular pressure is considered to be one of the leading indicators of glaucoma and therefore is often thought by many to be the primary symptom. Due to the fact that this increased pressure eventually leads to damage to the ocular nerve, this symptom is also the main focus of treatment in order to delay or prevent complete blindness.
How Canadian Disability Benefits Helps
If you’ve been diagnosed with glaucoma, your first thoughts were much more likely to concern the future of your ability to see rather than the Canadian Disability Tax Credit program’s application process. However, it is important for you to file your claim as soon as possible in order to make sure you receive the maximum benefit available. Canadian Disability Benefits can help by taking care of the entire process on your behalf so you can focus on your family instead of confusing paperwork.
