Glaucoma

Your eye constantly makes aqueous humor. As new aqueous flows into your eye, the same amount of fluid should drain out. The fluid which drains out through an area is called as drainage angle. This process keeps pressure in the eye. But if the drainage angle is not working properly, fluid develops in the eye and pressure inside increases and damages the optic nerve. The optic nerve is made up of several million tiny nerve fibers. The optic nerve looks like an electric cable made up of many small wires. If these nerve fibers die, blind spots will develop in your vision. You will not observe the development of blind spots until most of your optic nerve fibers have died. If all the fibers have disappeared, then you will become blind.
