Glaucoma is an eye disease most often caused by an increased pressure within the eye. It will cause a loss of vision due to poor blood flow to the optic nerve due to this increased pressure. The eye may slowly lose nerve function and peripheral vision. One unique characteristic of Glaucoma is that the entire process can occur without pain – if you have a family history of Glaucoma, it is best to be monitored annually by an optometrist to make sure your pressures remain consistent.
Glaucoma manifests mainly as a loss of peripheral vision (as pictured).
