Q: What are the symptoms of glaucoma and how is it treated? Julie Anne in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii A: There are three types of glaucoma: open-angle glaucoma, closed-angle glaucoma and congenital glaucoma. The most common type of glaucoma is open-angle glaucoma. Symptoms to look for are increased pressure, need for new glasses, loss of side vision and blank spots in your vision. About 3 million Americans suffer from glaucoma, making it one of the leading causes to blindness. If you have any of these symptoms, contact a physician as soon as possible. The most common treatment for glaucoma is to lower the pressure of the eyes. Other treatments may include medications, laser and other surgery.

What Is an Ophthalmologist? What Is an Optometrist? What Is an Optician? Videos ABOUT US Pressroom Bibliography Overview The term "glaucoma" refers to a group of conditions that exhibit a gradual loss of vision, often without symptoms. In glaucoma, vision loss is caused by damage to the optic nerve , which transmits light signals from the retina to the brain, where they are translated into images. Normally, the amount of aqueous humor being produced is equal to the amount that is draining out. Enough aqueous is present to exert enough pressure to keep the eye properly formed. Pressure builds up in the eye if the aqueous humor cannot properly drain. Increased intraocular pressure (IOP) may ultimately damage the optic nerve. Other factors besides intraocular pressure appear to contribute to glaucoma. Some people with normal pressure may experience vision loss from glaucoma, and many people with high IOP (sometimes called ocular hypertension) do not develop glaucoma. However, the higher the IOP, the more likely optic nerve damage will occur.

There are four major types of glaucoma:
  • Closed angle (acute) glaucoma Open angle (chronic) glaucoma Congenital glaucoma Secondary glaucoma
All four types of glaucoma are characterized by increased pressure within the eyeball, and therefore all can cause progressive damage to the optic nerve. Increased pressure occurs when the fluid within the eye (called aqueous humor) does not drain properly. The pressure pushes on the junction of the optic nerve and the

Overview Glaucoma is a disease caused by increased intraocular pressure (IOP) resulting either from a malformation or malfunction of the eye’s drainage structures . Left untreated, an elevated IOP causes irreversible damage the optic nerve and retinal fibers resulting in a progressive, permanent loss of vision. However, early detection and treatment can slow, or even halt the progression of the disease. What causes glaucoma? The eye constantly produces aqueous , the clear fluid that fills the anterior chamber (the space between the cornea and iris ). The aqueous filters out of the anterior chamber through a complex drainage system. The delicate balance between the production and drainage of aqueous determines the eye’s intraocular pressure (IOP). Most people’s IOPs fall between 8 and 21. However, some eyes can tolerate higher pressures than others. That’s why it may be normal for one person to have a higher pressure than another. Common types of glaucoma Open Angle Open angle (also called chronic open angle or primary open angle) is the most common type of glaucoma. With this type, even though the anterior structures of the eye appear normal, aqueous fluid builds within the anterior chamber, causing the IOP to become elevated. Left untreated, this may result in permanent damage of the

Glaucoma Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can lead to damage to the eye's optic nerve and result in blindness.
Normal and Cupped Disc Elevated IOP Enlarged Cup Physiologic Cup Open-angle glaucoma It has no symptoms at first. But over the years it can steal your sight. With early treatment, you can often protect your eyes against serious vision loss and blindness. What is the optic nerve? The optic nerve is a bundle of more than 1 million nerve fibers. It connects the retina, the light-sensitive layer of tissue at the back of the eye, with the brain. A healthy optic nerve is necessary for good vision. How does glaucoma damage the optic nerve? In many people, increased pressure inside the eye causes glaucoma. In the front of the eye is a space called the anterior chamber. A clear fluid flows continuously in and out of this space and nourishes nearby tissues.

(also called laser trabeculoplasty):
Laser surgery helps fluid drain out of the eye. Although your eye care professional may suggest laser surgery at any time, it is often done after trying treatment with medicines. In many cases, you will need to keep taking glaucoma drugs even after laser surgery. Laser surgery is performed in a doctor's office or eye clinic. Before the surgery, your doctor will apply drops to numb the eye. As you sit facing the laser machine, your surgeon will hold a special lens to your eye. A high-energy beam of light is aimed at the lens and reflected onto the meshwork inside your eye. You may see flashes of bright green or red light. The laser makes 50-100 evenly spaced burns. These burns stretch the drainage holes in the meshwork. This helps to open the holes and lets fluid drain better through them. Your surgeon will check your eye pressure shortly afterward. He or she may also give you some drops to take home for any soreness or swelling inside the eye. You will need to make several follow-up visits to have your pressure monitored.

Glaucoma is the name for a group of eye diseases in which the optic nerve is damaged. In the worst cases, the damage can lead to blindness, but this need not happen if glaucoma is detected and treated early. ... The aqueous humour that fills the anterior chamber (front part of the eye) is produced by the ciliary body, just behind the iris. The fluid drains back into the bloodstream through sieve-like channels called the trabecular meshwork. Normally, the amount of fluid produced is balanced by the amount draining away, so the pressure in the eye stays constant.
Cross section of the eye
Increased pressure
In most people with glaucoma, it is raised pressure inside the eye that causes optic nerve damage. The increase in pressure usually happens because the aqueous humour doesn’t drain away properly.

DEFINICIÓN SINTOMAS ... VER DEFINICIÓN Es un aumento de la presión intraocular, por falta de drenaje del humor acuoso, que produce lesiones en el nervio óptico con problemas en la visión y si no se corrige a tiempo ceguera. Si no se detecta a tiempo, este aumento de presión puede afectar al nervio óptico produciendo un deterioro progresivo del campo visual y una disminución de la visión. La tensión normal del ojo es de 12 a 22 mm de mercurio. El aumento de la presión intraocular ocurre cuando el humor acuoso no fluye correctamente hacia afuera y hacia a adentro del ojo. Esta obstrucción produce un aumento de este líquido en el interior del ojo con aumento de la presión intraocular y sobre el nervio óptico. Sin embargo hay personas que presentan lesiones del nervio óptico tipo glaucoma sin tener aumentada la tensión intraocular, y hay personas con tensión intraocular elevada sin lesiones del nervio óptico.
