What is Glaucoma?

The optic nerve is affected by glaucoma, a chronic, progressive, degenerative condition that causes distinctive damage to the visual field. The second leading cause of blindness, glaucoma, is crucial since it cannot be treated.

80 million people are thought to be affected by glaucoma worldwide. Over 50% of people with glaucoma are unaware that they have the condition, and this percentage may potentially be greater in less developed nations. This is due to the fact that glaucoma is asymptomatic in its early stages. Blindness could result from glaucoma if it is left untreated.
