Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve. Damage to the optic nerve is often related to high pressure (Intraocular pressure) in your eye. But glaucoma can happen even with normal eye pressure.

Glaucoma can occur at any age but is more common in older adults. It is one of the leading causes of blindness for people over the age of 60.

The disorders can be roughly divided into two main categories:

  • Open-angle glaucoma
  • Closed-angle (or angle closure) glaucoma

Open-angle chronic glaucoma is painless, tends to develop slowly over time, and often has no symptoms until the disease has progressed significantly. It is treated either by glaucoma medication to lower the pressure, or with various pressure-reducing glaucoma surgeries.

Closed-angle chronic glaucoma, however, is characterized by sudden eye pain, redness, nausea and vomiting, and other symptoms resulting from a sudden spike in intraocular pressure, and is treated as a medical emergency.

Many forms of glaucoma have no warning signs. The effect is so gradual that you may not notice a change in vision until the condition is in its later stages.

It’s important to have regular eye exams that include measurements of your eye pressure. If glaucoma is recognized early, vision loss can be prevented. If you have glaucoma, you’ll need treatment or monitoring for the rest of your life.

Other Tests like OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography), CCT (Pachymetry) are non invasive tests. In this test patient is asked to focus onto a light as the advance machine and its software assess the status of the nerve and the nerve fibre layer.

Can Glaucoma Be Cured?

Glaucoma cannot be cured but it can be controlled so that further damage to the optic nerve can be slowed or halted. This can only be done through disciplined and regular treatment from an ophthalmologist. The treatment of glaucoma is life long.
