Glaucoma Care

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that can cause vision loss and blindness by damaging the optic nerve in the back of your eye. This condition is particularly insidious because it often progresses without any noticeable symptoms until significant vision loss has occurred. Understanding glaucoma, its risk factors, and treatment options is crucial for early detection and prevention of further damage.

Understanding Glaucoma

Glaucoma is primarily associated with increased pressure inside the eye (intraocular pressure), which can damage the optic nerve responsible for transmitting images to the brain. If left untreated, glaucoma can lead to irreversible vision loss. There are several types of glaucoma, with open-angle glaucoma being the most common form. This type progresses slowly and is often detected during routine eye exams. Angle-closure glaucoma, on the other hand, can present suddenly and is considered a medical emergency.

Risk Factors

Certain factors can increase your risk of developing glaucoma, including age (over 60), family history, high intraocular pressure, and having conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Ethnicity also plays a role, with African Americans, Asians, and Hispanics at higher risk compared to others.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

In its early stages, open-angle glaucoma presents with no symptoms. As the disease progresses, peripheral vision may gradually decrease. In contrast, angle-closure glaucoma can cause severe eye pain, headache, blurred vision, and halos around lights. Diagnosing glaucoma involves a comprehensive eye exam that includes measuring intraocular pressure, inspecting the drainage angle of the eye, testing for optic nerve damage, and assessing areas of vision loss.

Treatment Options

While the damage caused by glaucoma cannot be reversed, treatment can slow or prevent further vision loss. Treatment options include prescription of eye drops to lower intraocular pressure, oral medications, laser treatment, and surgery. The choice of treatment depends on the type of glaucoma and its severity.
