Chan Eye Care, PLLC: Reliable Glaucoma Treatment in VA
Glaucoma is a disease that damages the eyes’ optic nerve. When fluid builds up in the front eye of the part, pressure increases in the eye, leading to optic nerve damage.
There are two major glaucoma types: primary open-angle glaucoma and angle-closure glaucoma. Open-angle glaucoma is the more common type and happens gradually. It occurs when the eye fluid doesn’t drain as it should and is painless and doesn’t cause vision problems at first. People who have optic nerves sensitive to pressure are at higher risk of developing glaucoma.
Also known as closed-angle or narrow-angle glaucoma, angle-closure glaucoma occurs when the iris is in close proximity to the eyes’ drainage angle and ends up blocking it. When the drain angle is blocked completely, pressure in the eye builds up.
Of the two, angle-closure glaucoma is a more urgent concern, prompting immediate attention from an eye doctor to prevent blindness. There is no cure for glaucoma but early detection will greatly help in delaying the progression of the eye condition.
