Sharp Memorial Hospital
Offering diagnosis and treatment.
Glaucoma is a group of conditions in which the normal fluid pressure inside the eyes — intraocular pressure — slowly rises as a result of the fluid in the eye not being able to drain properly. If draining does not occur, the fluid collects and causes pressure damage to the optic nerve. If undetected or untreated, glaucoma may result in the loss of vision.
