This damage may lead to side vision loss. If not treated, it may also lead to straight ahead vision loss. 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.
