Glaucoma

Common symptoms are severe eye pain, blurred vision or halos around light.

Glaucoma is a group of complicated eye diseases that cause damage in the optic nerve which is responsible for a good and healthy vision of the human eye. The damage to the optic nerve is usually caused by abnormally increased blood pressure (intraocular pressure) in the eye which can cause permanent loss of vision.

Primary open-angle glaucoma and angle-closure glaucoma are two of the most common types of glaucoma. It is a hereditary disease and is more common in older adults (over 60).

Common symptoms are severe eye pain, blurred vision or halos around light. The best way to prevent yourself from glaucoma is early detection and proper follow-up. Anyone above the age of 20 must visit a doctor regularly. It is true that the damage from glaucoma cannot be reversed but it can be prevented by regular check-ups and early detection.
