What is glaucoma and what is the glaucoma treatment?

SAMER HAMADA EXPLAINS GLAUCOMA AND THE POSSIBLE TREATMENTS OF GLAUCOMA

Glaucoma is raised intraocular pressures that lead to damage to the optic nerve. Not all increased eye pressure means glaucoma–this is a condition called ocular hypertension, which means that the eye pressure is high but is not high enough to cause damage to the nerve, which lies in the back of the eye.

There are various causes of glaucoma. Most of the time, we don’t know the exact cause. It’s just one of those things which affect the eyes, and the fluids cannot be drained out of the eye so quickly and so effectively, which means the pressure starts to build up inside the eye. It’s a disease that usually affects the middle-aged and above.

It is very rare for children to have glaucoma, although this can happen, but the treatment will be more or less similar to what we do with adult glaucoma.
