Eye Conditions and Treatment
Glaucoma is treated in the Glaucoma Service
Glaucoma is one of the major causes of blindness in America. It is not a single disease but rather a group of conditions that have different causes, symptoms, and treatments. What ties these conditions together is an increased pressure inside the eye (elevated intraocular pressure) that causes the death of retinal nerve cells and thereby produces blindness.
