Changing lives by preserving vision.
Glaucoma is a condition that results in damage to the optic nerve. This can lead to vision loss and even blindness. It is caused by an increase in pressure inside the eye, which puts stress on the optic nerve. Although glaucoma can occur at any age, it is more common in older adults. There are several different types of glaucoma, each with its own set of symptoms. Glaucoma can be treated with medication or surgery, but it is important to catch it early to prevent vision loss. If you think you might have glaucoma, see your eye doctor for a diagnosis.
If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, treatment is available to save your vision. The primary goal of glaucoma treatment is to lower the intraocular pressure (IOP) and stop the optic nerve damage. Several kinds of treatment are available to lower IOP. These include eye drops, laser therapy, and surgery.
