Glaucoma and
LASIK, PRK, LASEK, Epi-LASIK, P-IOL, RLE, etc. Glaucoma is a condition in which the internal ocular pressure (IOP) of the eye is elevated, causing damage to the optic nerve . The most common type of glaucoma will show no symptoms until loss of vision has started, but can be diagnosed with a complete eye examination. Glaucoma can be treated with medicated eye drops, laser surgery, and/or conventional surgery. Glaucoma is detected by the measurement of the eye pressure, visual examination of the optic nerve during a complete eye exam, and a visual field test to determine if loss of vision has started. Aqueous humor flows into and out of the anterior chamber of the eye to bathe and nourish the intraocular structures. When a patient has glaucoma, the fluid drains too slowly out of the anterior chamber. As the fluid builds up, the pressure inside the eye rises. If the eye pressure is not controlled, damage to the optic nerve may occur, which will lead to vision loss and eventually blindness if not treated.

Glaucoma (Primary Open Angle)
In primary open angle glaucoma there is damage to the optic nerve. It is usually caused by an increase in eye pressure. Treatment to reduce eye pressure can prevent, or delay, glaucoma from getting worse. All adults over 35-40 should have regular eye checks to detect early glaucoma.
What is glaucoma? Glaucoma is an eye condition where the nerve at the back of the eye (the optic nerve) is damaged. This can lead to loss of vision. In most cases, the damage to the optic nerve is due to an increased pressure within the eye. There are different types of glaucoma.
  • Primary open angle glaucoma (also called chronic glaucoma) is the most common type. This develops slowly so that any damage to the nerve and loss of sight is gradual. The term 'open angle' refers to the angle between the iris and sclera which is normal, in contrast to:
  • Acute angle closure glaucoma where the angle is narrowed. This is uncommon. In this condition there is a sudden increase in the pressure within one eye. The eye quickly becomes painful and red.
  • Secondary glaucoma is caused by various other eye conditions which can cause a rise in the pressure within the eye. For example, glaucoma may develop as a 'secondary' complication to some eye injuries.

Aging and Vision Loss: Glaucoma Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States, and the leading cause of blindness among African-Americans. If glaucoma is diagnosed and treated early, the chances of significant vision loss or blindness are greatly reduced. Glaucoma is a disease where pressure within the eye is so high that it can damage the optic nerve and lead to vision loss. Within a normal eye, the lens and cornea are continually bathed in a thin clear fluid. After circulating, the fluid drains out through special channels. Glaucoma results when this fluid no longer drains properly and pressure builds up in the eye. If the pressure is not controlled, it eventually destroys cells in the optic nerve. How much pressure it takes to damage the optic nerve varies from person to person. Vision begins to blur, the visual field narrows, and ultimately, total blindness results. Glaucoma affects side vision long before central vision is affected, which is why this “silent thief of sight”, as it is sometimes described, frequently goes undetected. Glaucoma

Proneuron Biotechnologies is a biopharmaceutical company developing therapies for neurological disorders, including spinal cord injuries (SCI), brain trauma, and neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS, Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. The brain, spinal cord and optic nerves comprise the central nervous system (CNS) one of the most complex and enigmatic systems in nature. The CNS is responsible for consciousness, memory, intelligence, the five senses, and controlled movement. However, these functions may be disrupted by brain damage, spinal cord injury or disease, causing severe disability, such as paralysis, blindness, or loss of mental capabilities. The disability is often permanent because the CNS has a very limited capacity for healing and self repair. While there is no paralysis cure yet available to treat spinal cord injury, nor any cure for CNS trauma in general, scientists at the Weizmann Institute of Science and Proneuron have demonstrated that CNS recovery may be enhanced by applying the body’s own repair system, the immune system, which is actively involved in wound-healing in other parts of the body. In the quest for a paralysis cure, Proneuron is pursuing an aggressive research and development program based on proprietary immune-modulating technology. Proneuron's lead product is ProCord, an experimental cell therapy that is being developed to treat acute spinal cord injury. Besides spinal cord injuries, additional products are being developed for other debilitating neurological indications.

We understand that facing specialized eye care or eye surgery can create anxiety. Each of our physicians have extensive, additional training to attain special expertise in the comprehensive management of glaucoma. Our physicians limit their practice to the care of glaucoma patients and work as a team to diagnose rare types of glaucoma and unusual conditions associated with it. If you have glaucoma, you and your physician should work together to protect your vision in the years ahead. With early diagnosis and therapy, such as eye drops or surgery , glaucoma rarely leads to blindness. Early testing and an accurate diagnosis, along with long term treatment, are the keys to maintaining your vision. Some of your questions about glaucoma may be answered on our Glaucoma Information page. You can also learn the terms that may pertain to you and your glaucoma here, or review some brief glaucoma definitions on our website.

Eye Diseases

Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the internal pressure in your eyes increases enough to damage the nerve fibers in your optic nerve and cause vision loss. The increase in pressure happens when the passages that normally allow fluid in your eyes to drain become clogged or blocked. The reasons that the passages become blocked are not known.
Noticeable symptoms of glaucoma may be a gradual loss of side vision (above) or blurred vision (below).
Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the U.S. It most often occurs in people over age 40. People with a family history of glaucoma, African Americans, and those who are very nearsighted or diabetic are at a higher risk of developing the disease.
The most common type of glaucoma develops gradually and painlessly, without symptoms. A rarer type occurs rapidly and its symptoms may include blurred vision, loss of side vision, seeing colored rings around lights and pain or redness in the eyes.

What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an eye disease that may cause loss of vision. It occurs as a result of a buildup of fluid in the eyeball. Imagine that the inside of your eye is like a sink, with the faucet always running and the drain always open. Like water in the sink, the fluid in your eye moves in and out. The fluid nourishes your eye and keeps it healthy. After the fluid circulates, it empties through a drain in the front of your eye. In people with glaucoma, the drain in the eye is blocked and the fluid can't run out of the eyeball. Instead, the fluid builds up and causes increased pressure in the eye. Return to top
How does increased pressure damage your eye?
The increased pressure in the eye destroys the nerve cells in your eye, causing you to lose your vision. At first, you may have blind spots only in your peripheral, or side, vision. If your glaucoma isn't treated, your central vision will also be affected. When glaucoma causes vision loss, the loss is permanent. Nothing can restore dead nerve cells. Return to top
