... Common Vision Conditions Glaucoma Glaucoma Glaucoma is a chronic eye disease in which normal fluid pressure increases within the eye. This leads to optic nerve (the structure that transmits visual information from the eye to the brain) damage which causes a gradual loss of peripheral vision (side vision). This vision loss, when left untreated, can result in blindness. An estimated three million Americans suffer from glaucoma, but half of these people don't know they have the disease. The millions of adults at high risk for the sight-threatening eye disorder can save their vision by having regular eye exams. Those individuals at higher risk for glaucoma are African Americans over the age of 40 and everyone over the age of 60. People who have diabetes, have a family history of glaucoma, have had eye surgery or an eye injury earlier in life, or are very nearsighted also are at increased risk. If glaucoma is detected early enough, it can be controlled before serious vision loss occurs. That's why it's essential to see your eye care professional on a regular basis and to follow the schedule of repeat visits that the eye doctor recommends.

A patient information handout on using glaucoma eyedrops, written by the authors of this article, is provided on page 1882. B ased on the configuration of the anterior chamber angle of the eye (Figure 1a) , glaucoma is classified as open angle or closed angle (Figures 1b and 1c) , with a number of possible subdivisions. This article reviews topical therapies for primary open-angle glaucoma, the most common form of the disease. Detailed reviews of the classification and pathogenesis of glaucoma are available elsewhere. Both patients and physicians may neglect to list topical anti-glaucoma agents as medications. Thus, family physicians must ask patients about ocular medications and keep patient medication records current. More than 2 million Americans have glaucoma.

Glaucoma is one of the world's leading causes of blindess. In the UK, 1 in 50 people over 40 have this condition. Glaucoma is not curable, but blindness is preventable if the glaucoma is diagnosed and treated early enough. While there are usually no warning signs, regular eye tests will help detect the onset of the disease.
What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an eye condition characterised by loss of vision due to damage of the optic nerve. The optic nerve carries sight images to the brain, and any damage to the nerve results in damage to sight. Usually, but not always, the damage occurs because pressure within the eye increases and presses on the nerve, which damages it.
Will I go blind from glaucoma?
If you have been diagnosed with glaucoma, this does not mean you will go blind, especially if you have been diagnosed with glaucoma at an early stage in the disease. Drops and sometimes operations can stabilise the glaucoma, and, with regular check-ups, you will be able to manage the condition. You will experience some degree of sight loss but it will be minimised with effective treatment.

Pneumatic Trabeculoplasty (PNT) for Glaucoma
Stephen Barrett, M.D.
Glaucoma is a group of disorders in which increased pressure within the eyeball (intraocular pressure) can damage the eye and cause impaired vision, ranging from slight impairment to complete blindness. The pressure is caused by an imbalance between production and drainage of the intraocular fluid (aqueous humor). Most cases of glaucoma can be controlled with eyedrops [1]. Oral medication and/or surgery may be used when control cannot be achieved with the drops. In 1997, the Arizona Glaucoma Institute (AGI), of Scottsdale, Arizona, began offering a "new treatment" for open-angle and pigmentary glaucoma using a patented vacuum-ring device. Devices of this type are FDA-approved for stabilizing the eye during refractive (lens) surgery, but they are not approved for use in treating glaucoma. The institute's parent company, Coronado Industries , marketed the device through another subsidiary called Ophthalmic International. Patent information for the device states: The open angle glaucoma treatment apparatus is a vacuum source and a vacuum applicator coupled by a hose. The vacuum applicator is an eye ring or an eye cup that is placed on the frontal surface of an eye. Suction (negative pressure) in the range of 10 to 30 mm. Hg. is applied by the vacuum source, which will fixure the ring or cup to the eye, or alternatively pressure is applied for 15 to 120 seconds. A second treatment is recommended later. It could be within twelve hours, on the following day, or within the next couple of days [2].

What is Glaucoma? Glaucoma is increased pressure within the eye. Cells inside the eye produce a clear fluid ("aqueous humor") that maintains the shape of the eye and nourishes the tissues inside the eye. The balance of fluid production and drainage is responsible for maintaining normal pressure within the eye. In glaucoma, the drain becomes clogged but the eye keeps producing fluid. Therefore, the pressure in the eye increases. The increased pressure in the eye actually can cause the eye to stretch and enlarge.

What causes Glaucoma? Glaucoma is classified as either primary or secondary in animals. Primary Glaucoma is an inherited condition. Primary glaucoma occurs in many breeds, especially American Cocker Spaniels, Basset Hounds, Chow Chows, Shar Peis, Labrador Retrievers, and Arctic Circle breed dogs (Huskies, Elkhounds, etc). It is rare in cats. Primary Glaucoma usually begins in one eye, but almost always eventually involves both eyes, leading to complete blindness.
