Acute glaucoma
Glaucoma (glah-CO-muh) is an eye disease characterized by higher-than-normal pressure inside your eye. The pressure can increase gradually or suddenly, slightly or dramatically, and for various reasons, depending on the type of glaucoma.
Chronic glaucoma
Glaucoma (glah-CO-muh) is an eye disease characterized by higher-than-normal pressure inside your eye. The pressure can increase gradually or suddenly, slightly or dramatically, and it may occur for various reasons, depending on the type of glaucoma.
Glaucoma treatment
Glaucoma (glah-CO-muh) is sometimes called the "silent thief of vision." Once it's destroyed optic nerve fibers, no known treatment can reverse the damage, which can result in blindness.
Laser surgery for glaucoma
Laser surgery won't cure your glaucoma (glah-CO-muh), but in most cases it can bring eye pressure under control by improving drainage of fluid from the eye.
What is glaucoma?
As you age, you can become susceptible to a number of vision-related problems associated with the aging process. One of them is glaucoma (glah-CO-muh), a condition that results from increased pressure caused by fluid within the eye.
