CONTROL DE LA EVOLUCIÓN DEFINICIÓN Es una enfermedad caracterizada por una elevación de la presión intraocular hasta un nivel que produce un daño irreversible en las fibras del nervio óptico. Las fibras de nervio óptico, se dañan cuando la presión intraocular se eleva por encima de un nivel que es variable de unos individuos a otros. Si la situación de presión elevada se mantiene durante mucho tiempo, o alcanza cifras exageradamente altas, estas fibras se pueden dañar de forma irreparable, es decir la pérdida de visión se hace irreversible. Cuando la totalidad de las fibras del nervio óptico se han dañado, se pierde por completo la capacidad de transmitir imágenes al cerebro, encontrándonos ante una ceguera total.

Nail-Patella syndrome (NPS) is a rare genetic disorder that causes abnormalities of bone, joints, fingernails and kidneys. NPS is commonly characterized by absent or under-developed kneecaps and thumbnails. It is estimated to occur in one in 50,000 newborns. Researchers at the U-M Kellogg Eye Center have found strong evidence of a link between glaucoma and Nail-Patella syndrome. A research study was initiated after Paul Lichter, M.D. , noticed a glaucoma patient had no thumbnails and recalled the patient's mother, whom he had treated years earlier, also lacked thumbnails. Both patients had NPS in addition to glaucoma. Other family members were subsequently examined, and some who previously were unaware of NPS were diagnosed with the disorder. Lichter's research team examined 24 people with Nail-Patella syndrome in two families and found that more than half of them suffered from glaucoma. "As a result of these findings, we recommend people with Nail-Patella syndrome have regular ophthalmologic exams so glaucoma can be diagnosed and treated as early as possible," said Lichter, who is chairman of the University of Michigan Health System's Department of Ophthamology and director of the W.K. Kellogg Eye Center.

What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an eye disease caused by increased pressure inside the eyeball,when detected early enough through regular eye exams is easily treatable.
People who have their eyes regularly checked with either an optometrist or an ophthalmologist as part of a routine eye exam will be as part of the exam tested for a serious eye disease known as glaucoma. This is a relatively silent disease that can strike at anytime, and when symptoms are finally detected, for some it may be too late. There are two types of glaucomaacute and chronic. Thankfully the acute form is rare, but nonetheless when it does occur, immediate treatment should be sought to prevent permanent loss of vision. Basically, glaucoma is a condition where pressures will build up within the eyeball. It is like a sink that is filling up with water, and with the drain closed. If you place some kind of a flexible cover over the sink, the cover will start to bulge outward. Similarly, this is what happens inside the eyeball, and if left untreated can lead to impaired vision or permanent blindness. The eye normally discharges this buildup of fluid through a network of tissues called a “drainage angle.” Problems begin when proper drainage within the eyeball does not take place through this area called the “drainage angle,” which is located between the iris and the cornea. As long as this “drainage angle” does not function correctly, the pressures will continue to build in the eyeball, and this in turn will reduce the blood flow to the retina and the optic nerve.

FCGCF provides diagnostic screenings opportunities for high risk glaucoma population groups in their home districts across the nation.
In support of the 81 members and former members of the Congressional Glaucoma Caucus, FCGCF arranges and provides screenings for glaucoma and other eye diseases throughout the United States at no cost to screening participants. From April 2001 to September 2004 we have screened approximately 36,000 individuals and have held over 1400 screenings nationwide. Of those screened, approximately 33% were referred for further vision related medical treatment, and of those referred, 15% displayed signs consistent with glaucoma. It is well known that for the vast majority of individuals with glaucoma, the chances of preserving their sight is significantly improved if diagnosed and treated early enough. FCGCF targets groups of people at high risk of developing glaucoma or other eye disease, such as African Americans and Hispanics over the age of 40. We also target geographic areas, where adequate eye care is unavailable. FCGCF utilizes mobile facilities, complete with the most up-to-date screening equipment, so that we can travel to high risk areas.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases causing optic nerve damage. The optic nerve carries images from the retina, which is the specialized light sensing tissue, to the brain so we can see. In glaucoma, eye pressure plays a role in damaging the delicate nerve fibers of the optic nerve. When a significant number of nerve fibers are damaged, blind spots develop in the field of vision. Once nerve damage and visual loss occur, it is permanent. Most people don't notice these blind areas until much of the optic nerve damage has already occurred. If the entire nerve is destroyed, blindness results. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the world, especially in older people. Early detection and treatment by your ophthalmologist are the keys to preventing optic nerve damage and vision loss from glaucoma. What Causes Glaucoma?

Glaucoma is one of the world's leading causes of blindess. In the UK, 1 in 50 people over 40 have this condition. Glaucoma is not curable, but blindness is preventable if the glaucoma is diagnosed and treated early enough. While there are usually no warning signs, regular eye tests will help detect the onset of the disease.
What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an eye condition characterised by loss of vision due to damage of the optic nerve. The optic nerve carries sight images to the brain, and any damage to the nerve results in damage to sight. Usually, but not always, the damage occurs because pressure within the eye increases and presses on the nerve, which damages it.
Will I go blind from glaucoma?
If you have been diagnosed with glaucoma, this does not mean you will go blind, especially if you have been diagnosed with glaucoma at an early stage in the disease. Drops and sometimes operations can stabilise the glaucoma, and, with regular check-ups, you will be able to manage the condition. You will experience some degree of sight loss but it will be minimised with effective treatment.

Home > Glaucoma Tracking How good is your vision?
Glaucoma is a life-long disease. Although glaucoma cannot be cured, it can be controlled effectively and the vision loss is preventable. Good control requires regular eye pressure checks to achieve and maintain the target pressure and eye tests to monitor glaucoma progression. Given the chronic nature of the disease, it becomes essential to maintain good records of the glaucoma treatment. Glaucomatrac is a web-based graphical method of keeping a record of your eye pressure, eye test results and eye drops. We believe that such a record is essential for several reasons. Maintaining such a record will allow you to get a better sense of your eye health and will allow for your participation in treatment decisions. This may empower you to ask questions about your disease that you otherwise may not. In addition, you will better understand the various treatment decisions. We believe that active monitoring by patients is an essential, albeit ignored, aspect of successful control of chronic diseases. We realize that most likely you will not have all the information needed. You will have to get it from your doctors or will have to request for medical record and abstract it yourself. However, it has to be clearly understood that Glaucomatrac is not an alternative or supplement to your doctor's advice.

Eye tests can pick up glaucoma Glaucoma occurs when the nerve at the back of the eye becomes damaged. This can cause a person's sight to deteriorate and can lead to blindness. What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is the name given to a group of conditions that affect the eye. There are four different types of glaucoma - acute, chronic, developmental and secondary. In each case, the optic nerve behind the eye is damaged. This nerve carries information from the eye to the brain enabling us to see. This damage can be caused by a weak nerve or more usually by the build-up of fluid in the eye. This occurs when fluid in the eye cannot drain properly. Acute glaucoma can occur suddenly and can be painful. If left untreated, it can lead to blindness. Chronic glaucoma is the most common form of the condition. The drainage channels from the eye become blocked over time and vision gradually becomes impaired. Developmental glaucoma mostly affects babies and young children. It is rare but potentially serious and is caused by malformation of the eye.
