What is Glaucoma?
It is a disease that damages eye's optic nerve due to increased fluid (Aqueous Humor) pressure; known as intra ocular pressure (IOP).
It is also called as "kala pani or kachbindu". This is a silent thief of vision as patient do not realize that one has glaucoma until and unless it reaches to advance stage.
And the damage caused by glaucoma is irreversible; treatment can be given only to prevent further damage; vision which has lost once can never be restored back.
