The eyes are filled with fluid, which slowly flows through and nourishes them. In glaucoma, the drain does not work well and fluid does not leave the eye as it should. This causes pressure to increase in the eye, which can damage the optic nerve. Acute and chronic glaucoma are defined. The various tests used to gather information about glaucoma are described. Treatment can be medication, laser, or surgery. We have also provided instructions on how to use eye drops.
