People with glaucoma have optic nerve damage from fluid buildup in the eye. Left untreated, this eye pressure can permanently affect vision. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world. Treatments — including eye drops, laser treatments, and surgeries — can slow down vision loss and save your sight. Glaucoma is a general term used to describe a group of eye disorders that damage the optic nerve. It's the most common form of optic nerve damage leading to vision loss. In most cases, fluid builds up in the front part of the eye. This extra fluid puts pressure on the eye, gradually damaging the optic nerve. This pressure is known as intraocular pressure (IOP), or eye pressure. Some people have normal eye pressure and still get glaucoma. Untreated or poorly controlled glaucoma can lead to permanent and irreversible vision loss and blindness. Glaucoma can affect people of all races and genders, but the risk increases with age. African Americans and Latinos are much more likely to get glaucoma than other races, and they tend to develop the disease earlier in life. Treatments can keep eye pressure under control and prevent vision loss. Eye exams can catch the disease early and save your sight. If you’re at high risk for glaucoma, ask EYE CARE how often you need screenings. If you have glaucoma, it’s important to use daily eye drops as prescribed. You can also ask your provider about laser treatments and surgery options. With proper care, you can keep glaucoma from worsening and causing irreversible vision loss or blindness.
