Glaucoma is a complaint that damages the optical nerve. The optical nerve carries electrical impulses of the light images converted by the retina, to our brain.

Symptoms of Glaucoma.
At first, open- angle glaucoma has no symptoms. It causes no pain. Vision stays normal. Glaucoma can develop
in one or both eyes. Without treatment, people with glaucoma will slowly lose their peripheral ( side) vision. As glaucoma remains untreated, people may miss objects to the side and out of the corner of their eye. They feel to be looking through a lair. Over time, straight- ahead ( central) vision may decrease until no vision remains.
Immediate treatment for early- stage, open- angle glaucoma can delay progression of the complaint. That’s why early opinion is very important.
Glaucoma treatments include Medicines, Laser Trabeculoplasty, Conventional Surgery or a combination of any of these. While these treatments may save remaining vision, they don't improve sight already lost from glaucoma.
