Tech Focus: Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a common eye condition in which your optic nerve, the bundle of nerves at the back of the eye, which feeds visual information to the brain, is damaged because of high inner eye pressure, known as intraocular pressure. This condition can lead to total permanent blindness in a short amount of time if it is not treated properly.
Along with regular eye exams to ensure early detection, a number of other steps can be taken to proactively prevent the development of glaucoma.
