Glaucoma (Eye Tension)
What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma, which is called "Eye Pressure" or "Black Water Disease" by the public, is defined as the damage of the eye nerve caused by the increase in intraocular pressure. It is a common eye disease that causes permanent vision loss if not diagnosed and treated early. When eye pressure rises, visual nerves are destroyed. The visual nerve consists of about one million nerve fibers. First, fine fibers are lost and the damaged nerves narrow the visual field of the eye.
What are the symptoms of eye pressure?
The sense of sight gradually decreases, when the complaints begin, permanent damage has settled in the visual field. In the "acute glaucoma crisis" type, eye pressure suddenly rises very high. Symptoms such as redness, pain, blurred vision, seeing colored rings around lights, nausea and vomiting can be seen in the eye.
What are eye pressure treatments?
Glaucoma is treated with eye drops that lower intraocular pressure. Surgery or laser intervention is another option to reduce intraocular pressure. Some patients may require more than one surgical intervention.
