Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to the optic nerve due to build up of fluids in the front part of eye. The extra fluid increases the pressure in the eye damaging the optic nerve. The increased pressure which is known as, intra ocular pressure, if continues to increase, may lead to permanent blindness. It is generally of two types, Open Angle Glaucoma and Angle Closure Glaucoma. It may occur due to: age related mascular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment.
