What is glaucoma?
To put it in the simplest definition, it is a disease in your eye that can damage the optic nerve when the fluid (that keeps your eye healthy, white, and thick) gets stuck when it is draining and clogs up and causes pressure, which could cause blindness to your eyes. Doctors don’t know why it happens in some people, so there is no real cure. The doctors do know that it takes place in the canal in the eye and they can do surgery to fix it and you can control the pressure with drugs.
What are the effects of glaucoma?
Glaucoma can affect the eyes in one of two ways. It usually affects both eyes, and it is the leading cause of blindness in the world. The fluid (that stops flowing and builds up the pressure, or the main cause of glaucoma) has a little to do with it, too. It keeps the eye firm and clear and if it doesn’t flow through the eye, then the eye doesn’t stay clear and firm. The pressure also affects the vision of the person. The pressure can damage the optic nerve and you lose your eyesight; the first to go is how far you can see, and the peripheral vision or how far you can see to the side.
The Causes
The causes of glaucoma are few. It can be hereditary and run in the family, but it is more common in African Americans than it is in Whites. Some specific things can also cause it, like steroids in the eye drops that people use, diabetes, and a previous eye injury or surgery. It also affects people of all ages. There are also things that can cause it like a bad diet, wearing contact lenses, too much reading or reading in low light, and other normal activities using the eyes.

    Glaucoma: The Second-Leading Cause
    of Blindness in the U.S.
    By Judith Lee and Gretchyn Bailey
    reviewed by Dr. Vance Thompson Your eye has pressure just like your blood, and when this intraocular pressure (IOP) increases to dangerous levels, it damages the optic nerve . This can result in decreased peripheral vision and, eventually, blindness. Glaucoma is similar to ocular hypertension but with accompanying optic nerve damage and vision loss. Glaucoma affects an estimated 3 million Americans, with 120,000 blind due to the condition. Elsewhere in the world, glaucoma treatment is less available, and glaucoma ranks as a leading cause of blindness just about everywhere. Even if people with glaucoma do not become blind, vision can be severely impaired. There are two major types of glaucoma: chronic or primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and acute closed-angle glaucoma. Other variations include congenital glaucoma, pigmentary glaucoma and secondary glaucoma.
    Glaucoma Signs and Symptoms
    Chronic glaucoma (primary open-angle glaucoma or POAG) is often called "the silent thief of sight" because you have no warning sign, no hint that anything is wrong. About half of Americans with chronic glaucoma don't know they have it. Glaucoma gradually reduces your peripheral vision, but by the time you notice it, permanent damage has already occurred. If your IOP remains high, the destruction can progress until tunnel vision develops, and you will only be able to see objects that are straight ahead.

What Is an Ophthalmologist? What Is an Optometrist? What Is an Optician? Videos ABOUT US Pressroom Testimonials Bibliography Overview The term "glaucoma" refers to a group of conditions that exhibit a gradual loss of vision, often without symptoms. In glaucoma, vision loss is caused by damage to the optic nerve , which transmits light signals from the retina to the brain, where they are translated into images. Normally, the amount of aqueous humor being produced is equal to the amount that is draining out. Enough aqueous is present to exert enough pressure to keep the eye properly formed. Pressure builds up in the eye if the aqueous humor cannot properly drain. Increased intraocular pressure (IOP) may ultimately damage the optic nerve. Other factors besides intraocular pressure appear to contribute to glaucoma. Some people with normal pressure may experience vision loss from glaucoma, and many people with high IOP (sometimes called ocular hypertension) do not develop glaucoma. However, the higher the IOP, the more likely optic nerve damage will occur.

    National Glaucoma Research AHAF's National Glaucoma Research (NGR) program was established in 1978 to fund research on and educate the public about glaucoma. Glaucoma, once thought of as a single disease, is actually a broad term for a certain pattern of damage to the optic nerve (the bundle of nerve fibers that carries information from the eye to the brain). This pattern usually occurs in the presence of high intraocular pressure, but contrary to popular belief, glaucoma can occur with normal or even below-normal eye pressure. Worldwide, it is estimated that about 66.8 million people have visual impairment from glaucoma, with 6.7 million suffering from blindness. In the United States, approximately three million people have glaucoma, and of these, as many as 120,000 are blind due the disease. Vision experts estimate that half of those affected may not know they have it because symptoms may not occur during the early stages of the disease. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the United States. Blacks experience glaucoma at a rate of five times that of Whites and experience blindness four times more frequently. Between the ages of 45 and 64, glaucoma is fifteen times more likely to cause blindness in Blacks than in Whites. Vision experts estimate that half of those affected may not know they have it because symptoms may not occur during the early stages of the disease. By the time the patient notices something is wrong, the disease has already caused considerable damage. Unfortunately, the vision lost to glaucoma is gone forever. Medications and surgery can help slow the progression of the disease, but there is no cure.

    Unidad de Glaucoma P L E n condiciones normales la presión intraocular oscila entre 10 y 21 mm de Hg. En determinadas situaciones patológicas ésta puede aumentar ya sea de forma aguda o crónica. Este aumento de presión provoca el daño del nervio óptico, lo que supone la pérdida progresiva de la visión periférica. En la mayoría de los casos esta alteración es gradual e indolora por lo que muchos pacientes no la perciben hasta que es permanente e irreversible.

    Now in Development: Shunt/Laser Combination Reduces
    Eye Pressure Associated with Glaucoma
    The Boston firm of SOLX Inc. announced that surgeon training began in February in Madrid, Spain, where the DeepLight Glaucoma Treatment System has been approved as an investigational device. The glaucoma treatment system currently is undergoing clinical trials in the United States. IOP control usually is necessary to prevent progression of glaucoma, which can damage the optic nerve that transmits images from the eye to the brain. SOLX officials say their new glaucoma therapy uses the system's Titanium Sapphire Laser and Gold Shunt in any combination the eye surgeon deems necessary to reach a targeted IOP. "This gives physicians a wide range of [eye] pressure reduction options while reducing or eliminating the need for glaucoma medications," said Gabriel Simon, M.D., in a company news release. Simon is director of ophthalmic research at the Boston University Photonics Center, which was the lead developer of technology creating the DeepLight Glaucoma Treatment System. The SOLX laser system works on principles similar to Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) by targeting specific pigmented cells to help open up the eye's drainage system to relieve IOP. But preliminary studies indicate the SOLX laser may have deeper penetration in targeting selected cells.
