Glaucoma affects an estimated three million Americans and is the second leading cause of blindness in the U.S. today. Glaucoma is a disease that damages the optic nerve. It is most often characterized by abnormally high pressure within the eye, called intraocular pressure, or IOP. Glaucoma typically causes no symptoms. Yet left untreated, glaucoma can result in decreased peripheral vision and, ultimately, loss of sight. It is a disease that requires specialized treatment and care.
