Glaucoma

Glaucoma is the progressive deterioration of the optic nerve causing changes to the edges (periphery) of your vision. Glaucoma does not necessarily mean your eye pressure is high, but the primary treatment marker is to lower eye pressure. Glaucoma is monitored by your optometrist by checking your eye pressure and side vision. 


The two types of glaucoma are open or closed angle, relating to the individual structure of your eye. Open angle means there is no physical barrier to the fluid within
Glaucoma is highly influenced by ethnicity, age and family history.
