This disease spectrum includes a set of conditions which results in chronic damage to the optic nerve. The optic nerve is located at the back of the eye, and it transmits visual signals from the eye to the brain helping in visualization. In glaucoma, the optic nerve is often damaged by an unusually high pressure exerted on it. This damage to the optic nerve could ultimately result in blindness.
Depending on the type of glaucoma, the doctor may choose to treat it using the following methods or even a combination of the methods.
Eye drops and Oral Medication
To reduce eye pressure, the doctor creates a new channel to ease the flow of the fluid. Though glaucoma is not completely curable, it could be controlled, and a complete vision loss can be prevented. It’s extremely important to treat it before it worsens.
