CAUSES of glaucoma
The causes of glaucoma are still unknown. It's possible that a lack of routine checkups for early detection plays a part. Glaucoma has no specific signs and symptoms. However, if you are finding it difficult to stare at the things for any length of time, or feel an itchy sensation, or excessive red eye, visit your nearest eye doctor. It may be glaucoma. An optometrist can diagnose glaucoma through comprehensive eye exams or vision tests. If left unchecked, glaucoma can damage the optic nerve and eventually even complete vision loss is possible.
types of glaucoma
Glaucoma is divided many categories, here are the most common categories. Open Angle Glaucoma: One of the most common types of Glaucoma. In this condition, your eyes may appear normal but your eyes fail to keep the water level maintained properly through the drainage ducts of your eyes, also known as trabecular mesh-work. The second is Narrow Angle Glaucoma: Also known as acute and chronic angle closure glaucoma is less common than open angle glaucoma. It can cause poor drainage due to the narrow angle between the iris and cornea or physically blocked by iris.
