Glaucoma, a group of eye diseases that can result in optic nerve damage and irreversible blindness, is one of the most vexing issues in healthcare, affecting 60–80 million people globally.
The world's #1 cause of irreversible blindness
What Causes Glaucoma?
The exact cause of optic nerve damage from glaucoma is not fully understood, but high eye pressure is most often associated with the disease. High intraocular pressure (IOP) left untreated may result in irreversible optic nerve damage that can ultimately lead to blindness.
A healthy eye drains continuously
and without obstruction
Blockages in the natural drainage system can
develop, increasing intraocular pressure
A life-long eye disease called Glaucoma
develops, which can cause
irreversible vision loss
