Causes of Glaucoma

It’s the result of an intrinsic deterioration of the optic nerve, which leads to high fluid pressure on the front part of the eye.
 Normally, the fluid, called aqueous humor, flows out of the eye through a mesh-like channel. If this channel gets blocked, the liquid builds up. The reason for the blockage is unknown, 
It is more likely to get it if persons

  1. are of African-American, Irish, Russian, Japanese, Hispanic, Inuit, or Scandinavian descent
  2. Age over 40
  3. A family history of glaucoma
  4. Poor vision
  5. diabetes Issues
  6. Take certain steroid medications, like prednisone
  7. have had trauma to the eye or eyes

Types of Glaucoma

There are two main types

  • Open-angle glaucoma- It is the most common type. It also calls wide-angle glaucoma. The drain structure in the eye -- it’s called the trabecular meshwork -- looks normal, but fluid doesn’t flow out as it should.
  • Angle-closure glaucoma- It is less common. It is called acute or chronic angle-closure or narrow-angle glaucoma. The eye doesn’t drain right because the drain space between the iris and cornea becomes too narrow. This can cause a sudden build-up of pressure in your eye. It’s also linked to far sightedness and cataracts, a clouding of the lens inside your eye.

Signs and Symptoms of Glaucoma

The signs and symptoms of glaucoma vary depending on the type and stage of your condition. For example:

Open-Angle Glaucoma

  1. Patchy blind spots in your side (peripheral) or central vision, frequently in both eyes
  2. Tunnel vision in the advanced stages

Acute angle-closure glaucoma

  1. Severe headache
  2. eye pain
  3. nausea and vomiting
  4. Blurred vision
  5. halos around lights
  6. eye redness
