Diagnosing Glaucoma and Treatment Options
The academic definition of glaucoma is an insult or damage or injury to your peripheral vision associated with typical changes on your optic nerve, which is the nerve that connects your eye to the brain. In the simplest terms, it’s easy to think about glaucoma as being associated with damage to your vision as a result of high pressure, although high pressure isn’t always a requisite for having glaucoma said Dr. Baseer Khan.
Glaucoma should be thought about as the silent blinder. Unfortunately you won’t know if you have glaucoma, without going to an eyecare professional, until it’s too late. It’s really important to go for routine checks with your optometrist to make sure you don’t have any of the early signs of glaucoma before you know there’s a problem said Dr. Baseer Khan.
