Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases which result in damage to the optic nerve and vision loss. The most common type is open-angle glaucoma with less common types including closed-angle glaucoma and normal-tension glaucomaOpen-angle glaucoma develops slowly over time and there is no pain. Side vision may begin to decrease followed by central vision resulting in blindness if not treated. Closed-angle glaucoma can present gradually or suddenly. The sudden presentation may involve severe eye pain, blurred vision, mid-dilated pupil, redness of the eye, and nausea. Vision loss from glaucoma, once it has occurred, is permanent.

The two major classifications for glaucoma would open-point glaucoma (OAG) Also limited point glaucoma. The "angle" to both cases alludes of the waste point inside the eye that controls those outpouring of the watery liquid (aqueous) that is continually continuously processed inside the eye. Whether those watery might entry the waste angle, the glaucoma may be known as open point glaucoma. On those waste point is blocked and the watery can't arrive at it, those glaucoma is known as limited point glaucoma. Varieties for OAG include: grade open point glaucoma (POAG), normal-tension glaucoma (NTG), pigmentary glaucoma, pseudo exfoliation glaucoma, optional glaucoma and intrinsic glaucoma. Varieties for limited point glaucoma incorporate incorporate intense point Conclusion glaucoma, unending point Conclusion glaucoma, What's more neovascular glaucoma.

  • Infantile glaucoma
  • Neovascular glaucoma
  • Drug-induced glaucoma
  • Inflammatory glaucoma
