What Is Glaucoma?
Glaucoma includes multiple progressive and chronic eye diseases that damage the optic nerve. Many forms of glaucoma are caused by pressure build up inside the eye. When this pressure damages the optic nerve, it can no longer send visual information to the brain. Glaucoma can cause permanent, irreversible vision loss and is a leading cause of blindness in Canada.
An eye doctor can detect glaucoma before vision loss begins and help you curb its progress. As such, early detection is critical for protecting your eyesight from this disease.
