Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve, the health of which is vital for good vision. This damage is often caused by an abnormally high pressure in your eye. Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness for people over the age of 60, however when detected in the early stages, glaucoma can often be controlled, preventing severe vision loss and blindness. It’s very important to get glaucoma screening done if you have the following risk factors: age over 60, family history of glaucoma, diabetics, severe nearsightedness, significant eye injury (even if it occurred in childhood)
