Glaucoma is a disease which damages the optic nerve — preventing the eye from sending accurate visual information from the retina to the brain — and is often associated with increased intraocular pressure. Those most commonly affected by glaucoma are aged over 40, nonetheless the disease can transpire at any age. If the disease progresses, permanent vision loss can occur, therefore early detection will be the best weapon against glaucoma.
