Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a

common eye condition

in which the fluid pressure inside the eyes rises because of reduced fluid drainage from the eye. Treatment is undertaken by an

Ophthalmologist

. If untreated, it may damage the optic nerve, which carries visual information from the eye to the brain, and other parts of the eye, causing loss of vision or even blindness. The aim of treatment is to reduce eye pressure, using medications or surgery, either a painless laser treatment, to help open the fluid outflow channels, or more traditional surgery under general anaesthetic to open a new channel. Early diagnosis and careful management are the keys to preventing

vision loss

.
