Vos yeux sont remplis d'un liquide fabriqué par le corps ciliaire. Ce liquide s'écoule à travers la pupille, devant le cristallin, puis sort par un drain appelé trabéculum. Le glaucome est une maladie dans laquelle une pression accrue dans l'œil endommage le nerf optique. Il survient généralement lorsque le trabéculum (drain) ne fonctionne pas et que le liquide ne peut pas s'écouler de l'œil. L'accumulation de liquide dans la partie avant de l'œil augmente la pression dans l'œil, ce qui endommage le nerf optique. Ce dommage peut d'abord entraîner une perte de la vision latérale (sur les côtés). Si elle n'est pas traitée, elle peut entraîner une perte de la vision centrale. Le présent dépliant définit le glaucome aigu et le glaucome chronique et décrit les différents examens effectués pour diagnostiquer le glaucome. Les médicaments, le laser et la chirurgie sont des traitements possibles. Des instructions sont aussi fournies pour l’utilisation des gouttes ophtalmiques.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Glaucoma Management" pamphlet 0140. Your eyes are filled with a fluid made by the ciliary body. This fluid flows through the pupil, in front of the lens, and then out through a drain called the trabecular meshwork. Glaucoma is a disease where increased pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve. It usually happens when the trabecular meshwork (drain) does not work and fluid cannot drain from the eye. Fluid buildup in the front part of the eye increases pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve. This damage may at first cause loss of side vision. If left untreated, it may cause loss of central vision. Acute and chronic glaucoma are defined. The various tests used to diagnose glaucoma are described. Treatment can be medication, laser, or surgery. We have also provided instructions on how to use eye drops.

Glaucoma
Specialty
Ophthalmology
Abstract
Your eyes are filled with a fluid made by the ciliary body. This fluid flows through the pupil, in front of the lens, and then out through a drain called the trabecular meshwork. Glaucoma is a disease where increased pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve. It usually happens when the trabecular meshwork (drain) does not work and fluid cannot drain from the eye. Fluid buildup in the front part of the eye increases pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve. This damage may at first cause loss of side vision. If left untreated, it may cause loss of central vision. Acute and chronic glaucoma are defined. The various tests used to diagnose glaucoma are described. Treatment can be medication, laser, or surgery. We have also provided instructions on how to use eye drops. The French version of this pamphlet 1910, "Gestion du glaucome", is also available.
