Glaucoma occurs due to pressure on nerves of the eye and may cause vision loss.Read more...
Glaucoma is known as “the sneak thief of sight.” Glaucoma occurs when the intraocular pressure (IOP) becomes too high for the optic nerve, causing loss of circulation. The nerve gradually dies off, and with it, the vision progressively dims, and if left untreated the eye becomes permanently blind.
Elevated IOP is hardly ever painful, and the nerve damage can be so gradual that a person may not be aware. An eye exam, measuring the IOP, carefully studying the appearance of the optic nerve and looking for other risk factors, is the only way to detect the signs of glaucoma.
Chemical agents in the form of eyedrops are the most frequently used treatment method, but in more difficult cases laser surgery or even a drainage operation to filter away the excess fluid from within the eye may be the only way to save vision.
If you require treatment for glaucoma, your Eye MD will follow your IOP, check your visual field to be sure there is no progression of peripheral vision loss, perform digital photography of the optic nerve and retina to record its appearance for later comparison, and adjust your therapy accordingly.
