Be wise – take care of your eyes
 

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is usually detected during a routine eye examination. The term covers a group of eye diseases which involve progressive damage to the optic nerve. Glaucoma is usually, but not always accompanied by high internal fluid pressure. Studies have shown that early detection and treatment of glaucoma, before it causes noticeable visual loss, is the best way to control the disease.
