Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a disorder of the eye affecting the nerve of sight (optic nerve). It happens due to a steady or sudden rise in the eye pressure, akin to blood pressure in your body. It is dangerous because it can affect the eye without symptoms and lead to irreversible loss of vision. Increased pressure within the eyes is one of the primary reasons for glaucoma. People who are diabetic or hypertensive are particularly prone to this disease. There is no known cure and the only remedies are eye drops to contain the pressure and laser procedures or surgery in advanced cases.
