Angeles Vision Clinic The web site has detailed information on many other eye conditions. Please feel free to visit our Home Page or check out other eye conditions on our Eye Conditions page What Is Glaucoma? Home Page Glaucoma is the diagnosis given to a group of ocular conditions that contribute to the loss of retinal nerve fibers with a corresponding loss of vision. Glaucoma therefore is a disease of the optic nerve, the nerve bundle which carries images from the eyes retina to the brain. The eyeball is basically a rigid sphere filled with fluid. As the total amount of fluid within the eye increases, so does the pressure, similar to over inflating a tire. Many people know that glaucoma has something to do with increased pressure inside the eye. The higher the pressure inside the eye, the greater the chance of damage to the optic nerve. Glaucoma is said to be one of the leading causes of blindness in people over the age of 40. It affects approximately 2% of that population. Loss of peripheral (vision off to the side) is the earliest symptom. Left untreated the field of vision will continue to narrow leading to tunnel vision. If detected early, loss of vision can most often be prevented.

Patient Notes
VOL 101 / NO 5 / MAY 1997 / POSTGRADUATE MEDICINE Glaucoma is a "silent thief." At first it causes no vision problems, but all the while it is robbing you of sight that you will never get back. What is glaucoma?
Think of your eye as a fountain, with fluid constantly circulating to nourish the tissues and maintain the eyeball's round shape. Glaucoma is a "clogged drain" in this delicate system. In chronic open-angle glaucoma (by far the most common kind), the fluid drains away too slowly (figure 1), which raises pressure within the eyeball and eventually damages the optic nerve. In acute angle-closure glaucoma (a less common type but a real medical emergency), drainage becomes completely blocked and pressure builds up very quickly. What are the signs of glaucoma?
Chronic glaucoma progresses very slowly. Often, the first sign of trouble is reduced side vision. Other indicators may include blurred vision, seeing colored halos around lights, adjustment problems on entering a dark room, and repeated difficulties that new eyeglass prescriptions do not help. Acute glaucoma comes on suddenly, causing severe eye pain and nausea and vomiting along with these vision problems. Can glaucoma be treated?

Exposing glaucoma
Primary care physicians are instrumental in early detection
Morris M. Podolsky, MD VOL 103 / NO 5 / MAY 1998 / POSTGRADUATE MEDICINE This page is best viewed with a browser that supports tables This is the second of four articles on failing vision Preview : Glaucoma is a common, progressive disease that can cause irreversible loss of vision. But as Dr Podolsky emphasizes, primary care physicians can help reduce ocular damage by identifying high-risk patients and recognizing optic nerve changes at an early stage of disease. This article focuses on diagnosis and treatment of the primary types of disease, open-angle glaucoma and angle-closure glaucoma. G laucoma is a significant cause of blindness world-wide. It is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States and possibly the leading cause among African Americans (1). In addition, glaucoma is prevalent in nearly 3% to 4% of the population over age 70. Early detection and treatment of glaucoma are essential in preventing loss of vision and blindness. Definitive diagnosis and treatment are the domain of ophthalmologists, but primary care physicians play an essential role in screening patients through careful history taking and physical examination and in identifying those at high risk.
Types of glaucoma
In ancient times, the term "glaucoma" referred to a broad group of blinding diseases. By the 1700s, elevation of intraocular pressure, detected by palpation of the globe, was known to be a distinct ocular disease. When the ophthalmoscope was introduced in 1854, glaucoma was redefined as diseases of the eye characterized by optic nerve damage and elevated intraocular pressure. The distinctly different mechanisms of open-angle glaucoma and angle-closure glaucoma were not revealed until the 1930s, when reliable gonioscopy allowed examination of the angle of the anterior chamber of the eye (2).

Glaucoma Glaucoma is a condition associated with elevated pressure within the eye. The fluid which fills the eye is constantly being produced, circulates around the lens, and exits the eye through the iridocorneal angle (see drawing). The balance between fluid production and outflow results in normal intraocular pressure between 10-30 mm Hg. Elevation in intraocular pressure occurs as a result of poor fluid outflow. Glaucoma most commonly occurs as a primary inherited disease in many breeds of dogs particularly the Cocker spaniel, Basset hound and Chow. Inadequate fluid outflow may also occur from secondary causes such as dislocation of the lens, trauma, inflammation, or tumors. In these cases, treatment will be directed at the primary disorder. The prognosis for vision in an eye with glaucoma depends on the degree and duration of elevated pressure. Irreversible damage to the retina and optic nerve may occur within a day or two if the pressure is markedly elevated. If only one eye is involved, your pet may compensate for his loss of vision until permanent damage has occurred in the involved eye. Since glaucoma will often ultimately affect both eyes, evaluation of the "normal" eye is very important. Gonioscopy is an examination of the iridocorneal angle that will assist in this evaluation. Treatment for glaucoma depends on whether permanent vision loss has occurred. In early cases, medications may be given to lower the pressure immediately. However, rarely is medication alone successful in the long-term. In most cases, surgery offers the best opportunity to restore and maintain vision. Laser cyclophotocoagulation is a relatively new technique which uses a diode laser to burn small areas in the tissue in the eye (ciliary body) which produces fluid so that less fluid is produced. This procedure has the advantages of being relatively quick with minimal post-operative discomfort. Results are variable though and occasionally, more than one procedure may be required. Some cases require a combination of medical and surgical management and all cases require close clinical supervision. You should watch for signs of loss of vision, pain, or a cloudy appearance to the eye.

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.

1 What is glaucoma?
2 What causes it?
At the front of the eye, there is a small space called the anterior chamber. Clear fluid flows in and out of the chamber to bathe and nourish nearby tissues. In glaucoma, for still unknown reasons, the fluid drains too slowly out of the eye. As the fluid builds up, the pressure inside the eye rises. Unless this pressure is controlled, it may cause damage to the optic nerve and other parts of the eye and loss of vision.
3 Who is most likely to get it?
Nearly 3 million people have glaucoma, a leading cause of blindness in the United States. Although anyone can get glaucoma, some people are at higher risk. They include: Blacks over the age of 40. Anyone over the age of 60. People with a family history of glaucoma. Among Blacks, studies show that glaucoma is: Five times more likely to occur in Blacks than in Whites. About four times more likely to cause blindness in Blacks than in Whites. Fifteen times more likely to cause blindness in Blacks between the ages of 45- 64 than in Whites of the same age group.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Iowa College of Medicine, Iowa City, Iowa Introduction Glaucoma is a family of diseases that share characteristic damage to the optic nerve head. The optic nerve head is the portion of the optic nerve inside the eyeball that is visible to your ophthalmologist during an eye examination. The optic nerve is an important structure because it is the pathway by which signals from the retina images travel to the brain and allow for sight. Therefore, one can have a normal eye and a normal brain, but if the optic nerve is damaged, the brain will not be aware of what the eye is seeing and the patient will be visually impaired. How common is glaucoma? Glaucoma affects up to three million Americans. Approximately half of those with glaucoma are unaware that they are affected. In the United States, about 120,000 individuals are blind from glaucoma. It is the second leading cause of permanent blindness among Americans and the leading cause of permanent blindness among African-Americans. Who gets glaucoma?

98. Glaucoma - Clínica Reinoso
Descripci³n, diagn³stico y tratamiento.
GLAUCOMA Existen varios tipos de glaucoma. Los mas frecuentes son los siguientes: GLAUCOMA PRIMARIO DE ANGULO ABIERTO El glaucoma es una enfermedad de los ojos que puede llevar a la ceguera irreversible. No produce molestias y es por eso que generalmente la persona que lo padece consulta al médico cuando ya es demasiado tarde. La mejor forma de detectarlo en etapas tempranas, cuando todavía es tratable, es consultar periódicamente al médico oftalmólogo quien realizando algunos exámenes puede diagnosticarlo y tratarlo a tiempo. Cómo produce ceguera el glaucoma? El glaucoma produce ceguera por un aumento de la presión dentro del globo ocular: normalmente el ojo tiene dentro de él un líquido llamado humor acuoso, el cual constantemente entra al ojo y debe salir en iguales cantidades. Si es mayor la cantidad de líquido que entra que la que sale, la presión dentro del ojo aumentará. Al elevarse la presión dentro del ojo se produce atrofia de algunas estructuras: las mas afectadas son las compuestas por tejido nervioso, principalmente el nervio óptico. Estas estructuras nerviosas no son capaces de repararse a sí mismas una vez lesionadas, es decir que si existe un daño avanzado por glaucoma, éste no podrá ser reparado. Es por esto que el tratamiento en etapas avanzadas consiste en conservar la poca visión que todavía exista para no llegar a la ceguera absoluta. Solo si el tratamiento se inicia tempranamente se logra evitar completamente la pérdida de visión.
