    Glaucoma is an eye disease. In this, the optic nerve is damaged that causes blindness. Glaucoma can lead to a stage of permanent blindness.


    1. Experiencing radiance/ circular illusion around lights

    2. No clear visual image or visual loss

    3. The eye may appear red

    4. Mild or extreme eye irritation and eye pain.

    5. Vomiting


    The symptoms are not entirely visible in the early stages. Just regular eye examinations can detect it at those times

    The situation that happens inside the eye is that the intraocular pressure increases. This is caused by too much fluid that sometimes gets produced there is produced excessively and so the fluid blocks major eye portions. Anyone can develop glaucoma. But some particular people are sure to get one.


    There are two types of glaucoma:

    1. Open-angle Glaucoma: This type has numerous alternatives and is an extended condition

    2. Angle-closure glaucoma: This type which may be caused under certain sudden condition or maybe as a separate chronic disease.


    It must be noted that damage made to the optic nerve and loss of vision from glaucoma is irreversible.

    Now to determine the intraocular pressure, certain painless tests are conducted. Through these tests, the status of the optic nerve and drainage angle is checked. There is something called visual fields. Their sole purpose is to diagnose the presence of glaucoma. Not only that it also checks the increment or decrement of the particular condition.


    1. Sometimes they are treated with the help of eye drops.

    2. Then there is laser treatment or surgery.

    The condition is critical and all of the situations are treated or taken under control through the above procedure.

    At present, researches are being conducted all over the world to seize the rising cases of glaucoma. While treatment is absolutely necessary, the early detection of the disease is more important. Diagnosing at an early stage eliminates maximum threats and gives better improvement results.

    Glaucoma is a gathering of eye conditions that harm the optic nerve, the strength of which is imperative for acceptable vision. This harm is frequently brought about by an unusually high pressing factor in your eye.

    Glaucoma is one of the fundamental reasons for visual debilitation or impairment for people past 60 years of age.eIt can happen at whatever stage in life however it is more normal in more established adults and grown-ups. Raised eye pressure is because of a development of a liquid (watery eyes) that streams all through within your eye. This internal liquid ordinarily depletes out through a tissue called the trabecular meshwork at the point where the iris and cornea meet. At the point when liquid is overproduced or the seepage framework doesn’t work as expected, the liquid can’t stream out at its typical rate and eye pressure increments.

    Glaucoma can be a hereditary family problem. In certain individuals, researchers have distinguished qualities identified with high eye pressing factors and optic nerve harm.

    Numerous types of glaucoma have no admonition signs. The impact is continuous to such an extent that you may not notice an adjustment of vision until the condition is at a high-level stage.

    Since vision misfortune because of glaucoma can’t be recuperated, it’s critical to have standard eye tests that incorporate estimations of your eye pressure so a conclusion can be made in its beginning phases and treated suitably. In the event that glaucoma is perceived early, vision misfortune can be eased back or forestalled. In the event that you have the condition, you’ll by and large need treatment for the remainder of your life.

    Indications of point conclusion glaucoma ordinarily please quicker and are more self-evident. Harm can happen rapidly. On the off chance that you have any of these indications, move clinical consideration immediately:

    Seeing coronas around lights

    Vision misfortune

    Redness in your eye

    The eye that looks cloudy (especially in newborn children)

    Furious stomach or spewing

    Eye pain extreme or mild
