Hi
Glaucoma is a eye disease which is normally associated with high intraocular pressure, although there is a rarer form in which the pressure in the eye can be in the normal range. The disease effects the ocular nerve of the eye which in turn damages the nerve fibers. The early signs are silent- in which the patient does not notice any difference in their vision, but their peripheral vision begins to be reduced.
It is often hereditary, and when treated early, can be treated with eye drops or more advanced cases require surgery.
