What exactly is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is a group of disorders that cause optic nerve damage. The optic nerve is placed in the back of the eye and helps in visualization by transmitting visual signals from the eye to the brain. Blindness might arise from optic nerve damage. The optic nerve is frequently injured in glaucoma due to exceptionally high pressure imposed on it. This optic nerve damage might eventually lead to blindness.
Glaucoma is also claimed to be the major cause of adult blindness. In a few cases of glaucoma, the patient has no or few symptoms. The effect is so consistent that it would not be detected until the situation was severe. What are the signs and symptoms of glaucoma?
