Glaucoma Unit

Glaucoma is a disease that affects the optic nerve, which is the part of the eye that conducts the images we see to the brain.

The optic nerve is made up of many nerve fibers, like an electric wire containing many filaments.

When the pressure inside the eye increases, some optic nerve fibers may be damaged, causing blind spots to appear.

These blurred spots are usually not detected until the optic nerve damage is significant. If the destruction of the optic nerve is complete, blindness occurs.

Early detection and treatment by the ophthalmologist are the keys to preventing optic nerve damage and blindness caused by glaucoma.

Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in the United States, especially in the elderly. But often, vision loss due to glaucoma can be prevented if treated preventively.
