Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that gradually steal sight without warning. Although the most common forms primarily affect the middle-aged and the elderly, Glaucoma can affect people of all ages. “If left untreated Glaucoma can result in irreversible blindness.”
Vision loss is caused by damage to the optic nerve. This nerve connects our eye to the brain, so that the brain receives and perceives the images. A healthy optic nerve is necessary for good vision.
