Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can damage the eye’s optic nerve and result in vision loss and blindness. Glaucoma occurs when the normal fluid pressure inside the eyes slowly rises. However, with early treatment, you can often protect your eyes against serious vision loss.
The optic nerve is a bundle of more than 1 million nerve fibers. It connects the retina to the brain. The retina is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. A healthy optic nerve is necessary for good vision.
Glaucoma is a “ SILENT THIEF OF SIGHT”
It’s a simple tragedy that any one today goes blind from Glaucoma, when its early detection is possible.
It slowly damages the eyes and causes irreparable damage. But, if detected early, it can be treated with medical or surgical procedures.
