Glaucoma: Treatment and Latest Advancements

Glaucoma is the most common cause of preventable and, irreversible blindness worldwide. Glaucoma is a disease that damages the eye’s optic nerve. It usually occurs when fluid builds up in the front of the eye. In a healthy eye, the amount of fluid produced stays in equilibrium with the amount of fluid draining away; when there is an imbalance in this system, the pressure inside the eye rises, which can lead to the development of glaucoma.
