What is Glaucoma ?
Glaucoma is a disease that damages eye’s optic nerve resulting in vision loss and in most extreme cases even blindness. Glaucoma occurs when the normal fluid pressure inside the eyes slowly begins to rise. However, with early diagnosis, you can often treat your eyes and guard them from serious vision loss.
Most glaucomas remain asymptomatic until advanced stages that is why it is called silent killer of sight. Few alarming symptoms may be
- Frequent change of reading glasses.
- Gradual decrease of side vision.
- Reduce vision in dim illumination.
