With age, our vision typically deteriorates. In addition to this natural ageing process, people might have eye conditions that damage their eyesight or even cause them to become blind. One of the more frequent eye illnesses is glaucoma. In the industrialised world, it is thought that 2 out of 100 adults over the age of 40 suffer from glaucoma. There are several different eye disorders that fall under the umbrella name "glaucoma," all of which include damage to the optic nerve. Ever-widening visual gaps are caused by this deterioration, which is typically initially undetectable. Your field of vision is the area that is visible to you when you stare straight ahead without adjusting your eyes.Your visual acuity (the ability to focus on details) also deteriorates in laterstages.
A kind of glaucoma known as open-angle glaucoma affects more than 90% of sufferers. Since this kind develops gradually, visual issues are not brought on by optic nerve damage for many years. The most popular treatments are eye drops and surgery.Angle-closure glaucoma is less frequent and can develop slowly for a long time before suddenly causing serious vision loss and other issues
