Glaucoma is a common eye disorder that damages the optic nerve, which is what sends images from the eye to the brain. It is not one singular condition, but an entire group of disorders with a common label. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the United States and chances of suffering from glaucoma increase with age. However, loss of sight due to glaucoma is preventable when the condition is caught and treated early by your eye doctor.
