Glaucoma is a condition which can affect the sight, this is caused due to the build up of pressure inside the eye. Both eyes are often affected and this can sometimes vary. In some cases one eye may develop glaucoma quicker than the other.
The eyeballs contain a liquid call aqueous humour which is constantly being produced by the eye. If there is any excess fluid then this is drained through tubes.
The cause of glaucoma is due to the fluid not draining properly and the pressure builds up. This is also known as intraocular pressure.
Intraocular pressure can damage the optic nerve, the nerve that connects the eye to the brain and also the nerve fibres from the retina, this is the light sensitive nerve tissue that lines the back of the eye.
