What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is the progressive damage of the optic nerve (the nerve of the eye), which connects the eye with the brain and gives us the sense of sight. Contrary to the popular belief, glaucoma is NOT the same thing as raised eye pressure. Many people with higher pressures in their eyes will never develop glaucoma and many people with normal pressures in their eyes may have severe glaucoma. Eye pressure is a very important factor for diagnosis and follow-up. Only examination by a specialised doctor and frequent follow-up can safely diagnose and properly treat glaucoma.
