Glaucoma is a slow progressive irreversible condition of the eye wherein the pressure (IOP) inside the eye may rise causing damage to the Optic nerve of the eye. This is seen as more common in the elderly but can occur at any age group.
Glaucoma has no major symptoms and hence the complaint can be a potentially blinding condition.
In severe cases, those with glaucoma may witness the following symptoms.
*abrupt decline in vision quality
*Glare and light sensitivity
*Extreme eye pain and redness
*Nausea and vomiting
Initial introductory investigations are needed to quantify the severity of the problem and also help in progression and follow-up of glaucoma.
Glaucoma diseases can be treated either through Medical, Laser or Surgery.
