Know your disease

Glaucoma is a group of chronic progressive eye diseases which lead to irreversible damage of the optic nerve situated in the back of the eye. The damage is usually caused by high intraocular pressure (IOP) or pressure inside the eye.

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness for people over the age of 60. If not diagnosed and treated properly it can lead to irreversible vision loss and complete blindness.

It can occur at any age but is more common in older adults. After the age of 40 years comprehensive eye examination is absolutely necessary to rule out glaucoma
