GLAUCOMA

The glaucoma is a disease that, due to a too high pressure inside the eye, damages the optic nerve, which sends the visual information from the eye to the brain.
Therefore, it is very important to control the eye pressure periodically as a precautionary measure.
The mentioned damage begins with the peripheral sight, which gradually deteriorates, but most patients do not notice this process.
As the disease progresses, the damage gets bigger and the visual field gets smaller. If this process is not controlled early enough, it can provoke definitive blindness.
It can be treated with medication (eyedrops), laser iridotomy or surgery (filtrating surgery –trabulectomy– and/or placing of a valve).
