Glaucoma is a condition where pressure builds up over time and causes damage to the optic nerve. People often do not show any early signs of glaucoma, and it does not occur until later in life. The intraocular pressure causes the fluid in the front portion of your eye to stop circulating. Glaucoma surgery is used to drain the fluid from your eye, relieving the pressure build up, and can be treated with laser or traditional procedures.
It is important to schedule yearly exams in order to screen for glaucoma. Schedule an appointment with a Greater Ohio Eye Surgeon specialist today.
