Glaucoma is a condition often associated with high eye pressure although it can occur even if the eye pressures are normal. It often affects both eyes.

It causes damage to the optic nerve which is at the back of the eye resulting in the loss of fields of vision and the eyesight eventually if not managed adequately. There are many types of glaucoma which can occur at any age.

Treatment of glaucoma involves lowering the eye pressure. Initial treatment often involves eye drops or Laser. If medical therapy fails, there are Laser or surgical options available to maintain the eye pressure and fields of vision.
