What is glaucoma?

Glaucoma causes irreversible vision loss due to damage to the optic nerve. The loss of sight is usually gradual and a considerable amount of peripheral (side) vision may be lost before there is an awareness of any problem. Early detection and treatment can save sight.

Who is at risk?

Although anyone may develop glaucoma, some people are at a higher risk, especially those with a family history of the disease.
