What Is Glaucoma-a Blinding Disease ?

GLAUCOMA-A BLINDING DISEASE

  • Glaucoma is A serious eye disease, which can lead to blindness, if not detected early and treated promptly.
  • Glaucoma is caused by increased pressure of liquid (aqueous humor) inside the eye.
  • This is how it happens. Aqueous humor produced continuously in the eye drains out regularly through exit channels.
  • This fluid maintains the shape of the eye so that it can function well visually.
  • If the flow of the fluid is obstructed, the pressure within the eye, which is known as intra-ocular pressure, increases.
  • This increased pressure may damage the fibres of the optic nerve at the back of the eye which sends message to the brain.
  • The intra-ocular pressure is measured by instrument called tonometer.
  • Ophthalmoscope is used to assess the optic nerve.

WHEN INTRA OCULAR PRESSURE IS HIGH

  • The damage to optic nerve may take place slowly and without the patient knowing about it.
  • As more and more nerve fibres are damaged, the patient can only see objects straight ahead.
  • He cannot see the objects on the sides.
