General Information
Glaucoma in diabetes
Parts of the eye
The optic nerve


see an animation (sister site)
This is a condition that may occur in people with and without diabetes. It is usually caused by too much fluid pressing on the nerve at the back of the eye, as explained below in more detail.
Parts of the eye
The eye is a round ball the size of a small tomato. The arrow points to the optic nerve.
It is partly hidden behind the eyelids. Imagine the eye turning as shown below... turning more and more then imagine 'cutting' through the eye ball... ...this is the view used below to explain glaucoma.
The blue arrow shows the flow of fluid, like water, through the eye
The optic nerve
The optic nerve is the 'electric wire' of the eye, taking messages about what you see on towards the brain. In the main type of glaucoma the optic nerve is pressed on by extra fluid in the eye, and this may damage the sight in the eye.

Are you at risk from glaucoma?
Summary: What causes glaucoma, how the disease is treated and the importance of regular eye checks for people over 40, and those at risk from glaucoma
Text: There's a very good reason why adults should think about having regular eye checks. It's a disease called glaucoma which usually destroys eyesight so slowly and painlessly that people with the condition may not realise anything is wrong until much of their vision is lost. Glaucoma can't be cured. But early detection with regular eye tests every two years for people over 40 (or over 35 if you have a higher risk of the disease) means glaucoma can be easily controlled with as little damage to vision as possible. If treated early, most people with glaucoma can keep their sight for the rest of their lives.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in Australia. It is as common as diabetes and although it's more likely to affect people over 40, it can happen at any age and occasionally occurs in children and young adults too. People who have a higher risk of the disease include anyone with a family history of glaucoma. If you have a parent or a grandparent with a vision problem, it's important to find out what the cause is, just in case it's glaucoma.

Nonpartisan organization whose purpose is to educate their communities about the risks of glaucoma and other blindness-causing eye diseases and to provide diagnostic screening opportunities for high risk glaucoma population groups in their home districts across the nation.
Home The Caucus Advisory Board Legislative Alert ... Related Links The Friends of the Congressional Glaucoma Caucus Foundation, Inc. (FCGCF) is dedicated to supporting the activities of the Congressional Glaucoma Caucus, a group of United States Congress members who are dedicated to helping all Americans fight the scourge of glaucoma and other eye diseases. FCGCF provides diagnostic screenings opportunities for high risk glaucoma population groups in their home districts across the nation. In support of the 77 members and former members of the Congressional Glaucoma Caucus, FCGCF arranges and provides screenings for glaucoma and other eye diseases throughout the United States at no cost to screening participants. From April 2001 to March 2004 we have screened approximately 23,500 individuals and have held over 640 screenings nationwide. Of those screened, approximately 34% were referred for further vision related medical treatment, and of those referred, 16% displayed signs consistent with glaucoma. It is well known that for the vast majority of individuals with glaucoma, the chances of preserving their sight is significantly improved if diagnosed and treated early enough. FCGCF targets groups of people at high risk of developing glaucoma or other eye disease, such as African Americans and Hispanics over the age of 40. We also target geographic areas, where adequate eye care is unavailable. FCGCF utilizes mobile facilities, complete with the most up-to-date screning equipment, so that we can travel to high risk areas.

glaucoma. Primary openangle glaucoma is a major health problem. How is glaucoma detected? glaucoma can be detected during a routine eye examination.
Glaucoma Primary open-angle glaucoma is a major health problem. Approximately three million Americans have this most common form of glaucoma , and yet half of them may be unaware that they have the disease. Glaucoma of all types is the second most common cause of legal blindness in the United States with approximately 80,000 Americans legally blind from glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma is often called the " sneak thief of sight " because this most common type causes no symptoms until vision is already damaged. Background Primary open-angle glaucoma is also called 'garden variety ' glaucoma because it is the most common type of glaucoma - representing more than 80 percent of all glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma is most often treated with eyedrops. Other forms of glaucoma include congenital glaucoma juvenile glaucoma , secondary glaucoma related to trauma , post-cataract or post-corneal transplant or inflammation , narrow-angle glaucoma ( refer to the the webpage on eye emergencies ) pigmentary glaucoma pseudoexfoliation glaucoma ( refer to webpage on pseudoexfoliation glaucoma ) , and

    WHAT IS GLAUCOMA? Glaucoma affects over 3 million Americans and is the second leading cause of blindness in the elderly in the United States. The disease begins when a blockage at the front of the eye prevents the aqueous humor, the clear fluid that flows through the eye's front chamber, from exiting the eye. The result is a build-up of pressure that ultimately damages the delicate fibers of the optic nerve, which connects the eye with the brain. The vision loss caused by glaucoma is irreversible. It is a puzzling disease with many forms, which makes the search for a cure even more challenging. There are two basic forms of glaucoma, open- and closed-angle. In open-angle glaucoma, the "angle" of the anterior chamber, where the cornea meets the iris at the front of the eye, appears to be open. This allows the aqueous humor to flow through the sieve-like trabecular meshwork, which filters debris from the fluid. Deep within this tissue, however, an abnormality impedes the fluid flow out of the eye. The form of the disease known as primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is what most people think of as "glaucoma." POAG is the most common form of the disease, accounting for up to 80% of all cases of glaucoma in the U.S. Glaucoma is primary if the cause is not known and not obviously related to another eye disease. If glaucoma is caused by some other known problem, it is secondary.

    Understanding glaucoma
    What is glaucoma?
    Glaucoma is the name for a group of eye conditions in which the optic nerve is damaged at the point where it leaves the eye. This nerve carries information from the light sensitive layer in your eye, the retina, to the brain where it is perceived as a picture. Your eye needs a certain amount of pressure to keep the eyeball in shape so that it can work properly. In some people, the damage is caused by raised eye pressure. Others may have an eye pressure within normal limits but damage occurs because there is a weakness in the optic nerve. In most cases both factors are involved but to a varying extent. Eye pressure is largely independent of blood pressure.

    Glaucoma: within the eye there is a fluid that is called "aqueous humor". The aqueous humor is normally maintained at a pressure of approximately 15 to 30 mm mercury in the dog. It is imperative that the pressure is constant to maintain the normal shape and firmness of the eyeball. Aqueous humor is produced by a part of the eye called the epithelium of the ciliary processes. It was established in 1979 by Van Buskirk, that the aqueous humor flows into the posterior chamber, through the pupil into the anterior chamber and peripherally to the spaces of the iridocorneal angle. Here it is resorbed into the bloodsteam by the scleral venous plexus. If this flow is blocked in any way pressure increases and results in glaucoma. Return to Medical Index Return to Bark Bytes Home

    Helping patients with the latest on low vision, whether from injury, aging, glaucoma, macular degeneration, albinism, retinitus pigmentosa, diabetes or other, specialty lenses or contacts may help.
    What is Low Vision?
    Low Vision is a condition in which a person has some vision but it is limited.   This condition may interfere with daily pastimes such as reading and watching television.  People with low vision generally have some remaining vision with reduced sharpness, narrowed vision, haziness or blind areas.
    Who has Low Vision?
    About one out of every 6 Americans has low vision.  It can affect people of all ages.
    What causes Low Vision?
    Low vision is often the result of an injury, birth defect, the aging process, disease or condition such as ocular albinism, retinitis pigmentosa, or stargardts macular dystrophy.  If the condition develops later in life, it is usually caused by glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration or diabetes.
    Can people with Low Vision be helped?
    Yes!  Today many new optical devices and systems can help Low Vision patients see better.  However the patient must be motivated to see better and show a willingness to work toward that goal.
    Company Profile
    Low Vision Associates was founded in 1986 to help people with vision problems.  In that time, we have assisted thousands of patients.  Even many patients who were told by other doctors that "they could do nothing more to help them" have been helped here.
