Glaucoma: causes, symptoms, treatment
In the eye of a person is constantly maintainedcertain pressure. This is achieved by the constant movement of fluid inside the eyeball. When eye disease such as glaucoma occurs, the symptoms of which are manifested rather quickly, this circulation is disrupted, and as a consequence, the pressure increases. The optic nerve begins to experience increased stress, and blood circulation is also impaired. As a result of such changes, signals from the eye stop coming into the brain. At first it manifests itself just a small loss of vision, but then peripheral vision disappears and the zone of visibility decreases significantly. If the disease is not treated, then partial or complete blindness may occur. The seriousness of the disease confirms the fact that all changes in the eye are irreversible. Symptoms of glaucoma in the eye make it possible to divide it into two forms: closed-angle and open-angle. In the first case, the fluid begins to accumulate due to the fact that the iris of the eye begins to interfere with natural drainage, and in the second - because of a violation of the drainage system.
