Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that are connected to optic nerve damage. The optic nerve is directly responsible for the vision, and its degeneration impacts the overall vision negatively. It is the leading cause of vision loss in people over the age of 60. Though aging is a common risk factor behind glaucoma, it is not the only one. Nerve damage due to glaucoma occurs primarily due to the accumulation of fluids and increased eye pressure. If diagnosed in time, the eye pressure can be reduced and the patient’s impending blindness can be prevented or slowed down.
