Glaucoma

Description:

This is a serious condition affecting the eyes and is characterised by high pressure within the eye (intra-ocular pressure) and may result in blindness.

When the condition is well advanced the person will normally experience some form of vision disturbance. The person may perceive halos around lights and have poor vision in the dark. The intra-ocular pressure is raised in `open-angle' glaucoma, but the angle between the iris and cornea stays open. In `narrow-angle' glaucoma, or acute glaucoma, apart from other symptoms, there may be severe pain around the eyes and throbbing headache may result. The angle between the eyeball and cornea is closed. Increasing pressure in the eyes causes the symptoms, as fluid cannot drain away. Genetic factors, stress, smoking and ageing are likely to increase the risk of glaucoma.
