Ocular hypertension can cause glaucoma. In these cases, the intraocular pressure within the eye is higher than normal and high pressure can lead to not only glaucoma, but permanent vision loss.
Ocular hypertension is hard to detect, and annual check-ups can help prevent them from occurring. At early discovery, a physician will give you eye drops or suggest other alternatives.
