Glaucoma is a progressive eye disease that can lead to blindness if not treated. It often has no symptoms in the early stages, but regular eye exams can help detect it. Glaucoma results from a build-up of intraocular fluid that causes pressure inside the eye, damaging nerve fibers and leading to vision loss, identified by a cupping shape of the optic disc. Treatment options include prescription eye drops, laser treatments, and surgery to lower eye pressure.
