Glaucoma is a disease that effects the eye by increasing the pressure of fluid. Within the eye containing liquid that is continually streaming into and being drained out in the eye. On the off chance that the drainage mechanism in a region called Trabecular meshwork will get blocked, liquid begins amassing in the eye, increases pressure inside the eye. This additional liquid that develops in the eye presses inversely to the optic nerve behind the eye, consequently harming parts of the optic nerve. This harm shows up as gradual visual changes and later loss of vision, on the off chance that it stays untreated.
Effects of Glaucoma
Glaucoma can lead to complete loss of vision. At first, the loss of vision begins from fringe and dynamically influences the focal vision. The focal visual sharpness is influenced just in the propelled level.
Open angle Glaucoma
The most well-known kind of glaucoma, known as open angle glaucoma happens when the canals draining the eye of watery diversion get to be distinctly stopped up. This blockage increases pressure bit by bit inside the eye up-to extent level. No pain causes at this point of time, so people are normally unaware of this progression that is happening. There are no early signs or side effects however, with on a year vision will be lost beginning in the periphery and till the focal vision.
Closed angle Glaucoma
At the point when eye pressure develops quickly, it is called closed angle glaucoma. This kind of glaucoma generally happens in people who have limit foremost chamber points. In these cases, watery liquid behind the iris can’t go through the pupil in this way pushing the iris forward, preventing fluid drainage through the point. It is just as a sheet of paper drifting almost a drain all of a sudden drops over the opening and obstructs the stream out of the sink. In closed angle glaucoma, one may encounter obscured vision, radiances around lights, profound agony behind the eye, queasiness, and regurgitating.
Navashakthi Nethralaya encourages its patients to have intermittent eye examinations for early stage of glaucoma.
