National Glaucoma Research AHAF's National Glaucoma Research (NGR) program was established in 1978 to fund research on and educate the public about glaucoma. Glaucoma, once thought of as a single disease, is actually a broad term for a certain pattern of damage to the optic nerve (the bundle of nerve fibers that carries information from the eye to the brain). This pattern usually occurs in the presence of high intraocular pressure, but contrary to popular belief, glaucoma can occur with normal or even below-normal eye pressure. Worldwide, it is estimated that about 66.8 million people have visual impairment from glaucoma, with 6.7 million suffering from blindness. In the United States, approximately three million people have glaucoma, and of these, as many as 120,000 are blind due the disease. Vision experts estimate that half of those affected may not know they have it because symptoms may not occur during the early stages of the disease. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the United States. Blacks experience glaucoma at a rate of five times that of Whites and experience blindness four times more frequently. Between the ages of 45 and 64, glaucoma is fifteen times more likely to cause blindness in Blacks than in Whites. Vision experts estimate that half of those affected may not know they have it because symptoms may not occur during the early stages of the disease. By the time the patient notices something is wrong, the disease has already caused considerable damage. Unfortunately, the vision lost to glaucoma is gone forever. Medications and surgery can help slow the progression of the disease, but there is no cure.

Pharmacia produced information on this prescription eyedrop that treats patients who suffer from openangle glaucoma.
IMS HEALTH, NPA data. Total dispensed prescriptions. March 2003 through February 2004. XALATAN is a prescription medicine used to lower eye pressure, also called intraocular pressure, or IOP, in patients with ocular hypertension (abnormally high IOP) or open-angle glaucoma. Important Safety Information about XALATAN Like all medicines, XALATAN can have side effects. These side effects are usually mild and tolerable and may include blurred vision, burning and stinging, eyelid redness, the feeling that something is in the eye, eye itching, increased pigmentation (darkening) of eye color, or irritation of the clear front surface of the eye. XALATAN may slowly cause darkening of eye color due to increased brown color, darkening of the eyelid and eyelashes, and increased growth and thickness of eyelashes. Color changes can increase as long as XALATAN is administered; eye color changes are likely to be permanent.

The Sneak-Thief of Sight This animation shows progressive vision damage from untreated glaucoma THE EYE
To keep it light-weight for rapid movement, the eye is made from soft, but strong tissues. However, like a camera, the eye needs to maintain its shape so that it can focus light accurately. This is achieved by keeping the eye firm, like a balloon. Clear fluid (the aqueous) is pumped into the eye from the bloodstream carrying oxygen, sugars and other essential nutrients. Circulating around the structures inside the eye, the aqueous is then drained through a meshwork back to the blood to be renewed. Drainage is against resistance, so the eye's pressure is kept higher than air pressure, but lower than the blood pressure. Normal Eye WHAT IS GLAUCOMA?
Glaucoma is the name given to a group of eye diseases in which the optic nerve at the back of the eye is slowly destroyed. In most people this damage is due to an increased pressure inside the eye - a result of blockage of the circulation of aqueous, or its drainage. In other patients the damage may be caused by poor blood supply to the vital optic nerve fibres, a weakness in the structure of the nerve, and/or a problem in the health of the nerve fibres themselves. Over 300,000 Australians have glaucoma. It is as common as diabetes. While it is more common as people age, it can occur at any age. As our population becomes older, the proportion of glaucoma patients is increasing.

GLAUCOMA Es una de las enfermedades que con más frecuencia produce importantes déficits de la función visual, situándose entre las principales causas de ceguera en todo el mundo. El lograr un diagnóstico precoz, para iniciar el tratamiento correcto y establecer las pautas de seguimiento mas adecuadas, constituye el arma mas eficaz para evitar estas graves consecuencias. DEFINICIÓN. ¿POR QUE SE PRODUCE EL GLAUCOMA? TIPOS DE GLAUCOMA POBLACIÓN DE RIESGO ... CONTROL DE LA EVOLUCIÓN DEFINICIÓN Es una enfermedad caracterizada por una elevación de la presión intraocular hasta un nivel que produce un daño irreversible en las fibras del nervio óptico. Las fibras de nervio óptico, se dañan cuando la presión intraocular se eleva por encima de un nivel que es variable de unos individuos a otros. Si la situación de presión elevada se mantiene durante mucho tiempo, o alcanza cifras exageradamente altas, estas fibras se pueden dañar de forma irreparable, es decir la pérdida de visión se hace irreversible. Cuando la totalidad de las fibras del nervio óptico se han dañado, se pierde por completo la capacidad de transmitir imágenes al cerebro, encontrándonos ante una ceguera total.

Home News Library Links ... CONTACT GLAUCOMA As part of NAVH's Educational Series we are pleased to provide this excerpt from our article on ANATOMY OF THE EYE IN GLAUCOMA. THE EYE'S ANATOMY: HOW THE EYE WORKS


GLAUCOMA THE SNEAK THIEF OF SIGHT Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States. It is THE leading cause of blindness among African-Americans, and the leading cause of PREVENTABLE blindness in the U.S. Glaucoma may occur at any age but happens with increasing frequency during advancing years. Approximately 2% of the population over the age of 40 is affected. It's estimated that over 2 million Americans have glaucoma, and more than half of them are not aware they have the disease. THE EYE'S ANATOMY: HOW THE EYE WORKS Your eye is like a camera. Light enters the clear dome in the front of the eye (cornea), passes through the focusing part (lens), and comes to rest on the "film" or recording part (retina). The nerve attached to the eye carries these recorded pictures "back to the brain" and WE SEE. Eyes must stay inflated and round, just like a basketball. To stay inflated, the eye constantly makes fluid (aqueous humor) which circulates inside the front of the eye (anterior chamber), and leaves the eye by an intricate drain (trabecular meshwork). The balance between how much fluid is made and how much fluid leaves the eye determines how inflated the eye is (intraocular pressure). If all is working well, the fluid made inside the eye equals the amount of fluid leaving the eye, and the intraocular pressure is normal. If fluid cannot leave the eye properly, it builds up inside and the eye's pressure rises. This is the basic fact of glaucoma: high pressure inside the eye damages the eye's delicate optic nerve.
