    Glaucoma is a group of diseases involving progressive damage to the optic nerve head at the back of the eye. In persons with glaucoma, the damage generally progresses slowly and gradually narrows down the field of vision. The damage is painless, and patients in the early stages of the condition may not notice their field of vision is restricted.

    By the time patients notice the glaucoma-related narrowing of their visual field, the disease may have progressed to an advanced stage. Glaucoma usually affects both eyes. When left untreated, it may have serious consequences such as major impairment of vision or, in the worst case, total blindness. Glaucoma takes many different forms, the most common of which is primary open angle glaucoma. This type usually occurs in the elderly. Risk factors for glaucoma include increased intraocular pressure, age, a family history of glaucoma, being short-sighted, lens exfoliation syndrome, and other conditions such as high blood pressure.

    Regular examinations by an ophthalmologist are the best way to detect glaucoma in time. During an appointment, an eye examination is performed to check for any glaucoma. There is no cure for glaucoma, and any resulting changes to the visual field are permanent. However, the progression of the condition can be delayed, thus slowing down or preventing further damage to the optic nerve. The main aim in the treatment of glaucoma is to reduce intraocular pressure. Your doctor will assess which treatment is most suitable for you.
