Glaucoma is actually an eye disease that damages the optic nerve. The function of the optic nerve is to supply visual information to the brain from the eyes. Sometimes this eye problem can happen due to high pressure inside the eye. As time passes by increase in pressure can erode the optic nerve tissue which eventually will lead to vision loss i.e., blindness.

Glaucoma does not have any symptoms as such so if anyone faces some problems like sudden blurred vision, seeing some coloured rings around the lights, sudden disturbance in vision, redness in the eye, vomiting, nausea and severe eye pain they should immediately consult with an eye specialist.

Chances of people to suffer from glaucoma are: –

  • People above 40 years
  • Having a family history of glaucoma
  • Suffering from diabetes
  • Sudden physical eye injuries
  • People using steroids for a long span of time.

Most of the times glaucoma increases with age so it is always recommended to start the treatment from an early stage to protect the vision. If glaucoma runs in the family then start visiting the doctor and do as the doctor says. Till a certain stage, doctors can protect your eyes but if it is too late then they will be helpless. There is nothing to be scared of, the only suggestion which I would like to give my readers is to have the medicines on time and use the drops as prescribed everything will be fine.
