What is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma is often called a ‘thief of sight’. Due to an increase in eye pressure (Intra-ocular pressure), there is damage to the Optic Nerve of the eye. The optic nerve is a key nerve of the eye as it transmits visual information to the brain. Long-term damage of the optic nerve can lead to blindness as well in severe cases.
Who is at risk of Glaucoma?
Anyone can get glaucoma, but certain groups are at higher risk. These groups include people over age 40, and over 60, people with a family history of glaucoma, and those with diabetes. People with diabetes are 2 times more likely to get glaucoma than those without diabetes.
What are the symptoms of glaucoma?
Glaucoma often is called the “silent thief of sight,” because most types typically cause no pain and produce no symptoms until noticeable vision loss occurs. For this reason, glaucoma often progresses undetected until the optic nerve has already been irreversibly damaged, with varying degrees of permanent vision loss. But with acute angle-closure glaucoma, sudden symptoms can include blurry vision, halos around lights, intense eye pain, nausea and vomiting. If you have these symptoms, see an eye care practitioner or visit the emergency room immediately so steps can be taken to prevent permanent vision loss.
What are the symptoms of glaucoma?
During routine eye exams, a tonometer measures your intraocular pressure or IOP. An abnormally high IOP reading indicates a problem with the eye’s amount of fluid (aqueous humour). Either the eye produces too much fluid, or it’s not draining properly. Normally, IOP should be below 21 mmHg If your IOP is higher than 30 mmHg, your risk of glaucoma damage is 40 times greater than someone with an IOP of 15 mmHg or lower. Other methods of monitoring glaucoma involve imaging of the eye’s optic nerve and internal structures (scanning laser polarimetry or SLP, optical coherence tomography or OCT, Visual field testing is a way for your eye doctor to determine if you are experiencing vision loss from glaucoma. Visual field testing involves staring straight ahead into a machine and clicking a button when you notice a blinking light in your peripheral vision. The visual field test may be repeated at regular intervals Gonioscopy is another test done to evaluate the angle of the eye.
Type Of Glaucoma
The two major types of glaucoma are chronic or primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and acute angle-closure glaucoma. Glaucoma can be very destructive to your vision; it’s the second-leading cause of blindness in India. Primary open-angle glaucoma. This common type of glaucoma gradually reduces your peripheral vision without other symptoms. But by the time you notice it, permanent damage has already occurred. Angle-closure glaucoma. Angle-closure or narrow-angle glaucoma produces sudden symptoms such as eye pain, headaches, halos around lights, dilated pupils, vision loss, red eyes, nausea and vomiting.
Best Treatment for Glaucoma
Treatment can involve glaucoma surgery, lasers, or medication depending on the severity. Eye drops with medication to lower IOP are usually tried first to control glaucoma. Because glaucoma often is painless, people may become careless about the strict use of eye drops that can control eye pressure and help prevent permanent eye damage.

Freqently Ask Question
The best treatment for glaucoma depends on the individual case and severity of the disease. Typically, the first line of treatment involves the use of eye drops to lower intraocular pressure. If eye drops are not effective, other treatment options include laser therapy, surgery, or a combination of treatments.
Laser treatment for glaucoma can help to reduce intraocular pressure and slow the progression of the disease, but it is not a cure. Treatment is aimed at managing the condition and preventing further vision loss.
Glaucoma is often called the “silent thief of sight” because it typically has no symptoms in its early stages. As the disease progresses, however, symptoms may include vision loss, blurry vision, halos around lights, eye pain, and nausea or vomiting. Treatment for glaucoma typically involves the use of eye drops to lower intraocular pressure, but other options may be considered depending on the severity of the disease.
Early diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma can help to slow the progression of the disease and prevent further vision loss. However, if left untreated or if the disease has progressed too far, glaucoma can cause permanent vision loss or blindness. Regular eye exams and early detection are key to preventing vision loss from glaucoma.
