Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases characterized by damage to the optic
nerve usually due to excessively high intraocular pressure (IOP).This increased
pressure within the eye, if untreated can lead to optic nerve damage resulting
in progressive, permanent vision loss, starting with unnoticeable blind spots at
the edges of the field of vision, progressing to tunnel vision, and then to
The cause of vision loss in all forms of glaucoma is optic nerve damage.
There are many underlying causes and forms of glaucoma. Most causes of glaucoma
are not known, but it is clear that a number of different processes are
involved, and a malfunction in any one of them could cause glaucoma. For
example, trauma to the eye could result in the angle becoming blocked, or, as a
person ages, the lens becomes larger and may push the iris forward. The cause of
optic nerve damage in normal-tension glaucoma is also unknown, but there is
speculation that the optic nerves of these patients are susceptible to damage at
lower pressures than what is usually considered to be abnormally high.
It is probable that most glaucoma is inherited. At least ten defective genes
that cause glaucoma have been identified.
At first, chronic open-angle glaucoma is without noticeable symptoms. The
pressure build-up is gradual and there is no discomfort. Moreover, the vision
loss is too gradual to be noticed and each eye fills-in the image where its
partner has a blind spot. However, if it is not treated, vision loss becomes
evident, and the condition can be very painful.
On the other hand, acute closed-angle glaucoma is obvious from the beginning
of an attack. The symptoms are, blurred vision, severe pain, sensitivity to
light, nausea, and halos around lights. The normally clear corneas may be hazy.
This is an ocular emergency and needs to be treated immediately.
Similarly, congenital glaucoma is evident at birth. Symptoms are bulging
eyes, cloudy corneas, excessive tearing, and sensitivity to light.
Intraocular pressure, visual field defects, the angle in the eye where the
iris meets the cornea, and the appearance of the optic nerve are all considered
in the diagnosis of glaucoma. IOP is measured with an instrument known as a
tonometer. One type of tonometer involves numbing the eye with an eyedrop that
has a yellow coloring in it and touching the cornea with a small probe. This
quick test is a routine part of an eye examination and is usually included
without extra charge in the cost of a visit to an ophthalmologist or
Ophthalmoscopes, hand-held instruments with a light source, are used to
detect optic nerve damage by looking through the pupil. The optic nerve is
examined for changes; the remainder of the back of the eye can be examined as
well. Other types of lenses that can be used to examine the back of the eye may
also be used. A slit lamp will allow the doctor to examine the front of the eye
(i.e., cornea, iris, and lens).
Visual field tests (perimetry) can detect blind spots in a patient's field of
vision before the patient is aware of them. Certain defects may indicate
Another test, gonioscopy, can distinguish between narrow-angle and open-angle
glaucoma. A gonioscope, which is a hand-held contact lens with a mirror, allows
visualization of the angle between the iris and the cornea.
Intraocular pressure can vary throughout the day. For that reason, the doctor
may have a patient return for several visits to measure the IOP at different
times of the day.
