Write the Vision: Glaucoma


♪ ♪ Glaucoma tends to
be a silent thief of sight. Glaucoma is a series of diseases that tend to
affect the optic nerve. It comes about as a result of increased pressure
buildup inside the eye, and that increased pressure
damages the optic nerve. We begin to lose vision on
the sides, our side vision. Our central
vision may be uninvolved until the late stages. So, as we gradually
begin to lose side vision, we may not be
aware until, maybe, we may notice that
we’re bumping into things or hitting things
in our periphery. By that time, that
vision is lost permanently. The earlier the
glaucoma is detected, the more probable
that sight can be retained and vision loss prevented.
