Glaucoma is a Greek word that refers to a group of eye diseases, which damage the optic nerve and nerve fibers. This is an eye condition characterized by increased fluid pressure, which, if left untreated, may lead to blindness. Though there is no cure for glaucoma, laser therapies, medication, or surgery can reduce or prevent further vision loss. Of different types of glaucoma, the main types include open angle glaucoma, angle closure glaucoma, and congenital glaucoma. Glaucoma can occur at any age though it is common in elderly people. It may be noted that at the early stages of the disease, usually an individual may not experience any symptom.
Glaucoma can occur in individuals with blood pressure, diabetes, steroid use, eye injuries, a family history of glaucoma, and migraine. It should be noted that in most of the cases vision loss as a result of glaucoma is irreversible and hence is permanent. This is a progressive disease that can be detected and prevented by means of regular eye examinations. The glaucoma test involves checking of the optic  nerve and eye  pressure   as well as
assessment of the visual field. The symptoms of glaucoma include loss of side vision, nausea and vomiting, severe eye pain and headaches, watering, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, difficulty in adjusting to brightness, and so on.
