How vision is affected by Glaucoma:
Glaucoma involves loss of vision due to damage of the optic nerve. The optic nerve carries sight images to the brain and any damage to the nerve results in damage to sight. Since the optic nerve is the primary carrier of visual stimulus to the brain, damage to it could actually result in significant loss of vision. Glaucoma generally affects both the eyes, although the pressure inside each eye could be different. While there are usually no warning signs, regular eye tests will help detect the onset of the disease
Certain level of pressure is needed for the eye to keep its shape and healthy but if the eye pressure gets too high, it squeezes the optic nerve and kills some of the nerve fibres, which leads to blindness. The first areas to be affected are the off-centre parts of the vision. If the glaucoma is not treated, the damage can progress to tubular vision and eventual loss of central vision, although blindness is rare.
