an eye with a dull iris and light pupil to indicate glaucoma

What is glaucoma?

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve at the back of the eye resulting in permanent loss of peripheral vision and eventual blindness.  There are numerous types of glaucoma, but Primary Open Angle Glaucoma is the most common. It is often referred to as “the silent thief of sight” because there are no symptoms until the vision is severely and irreversibly damaged. Its prevalence increases with age; 1 in 8 Australians over the age of 80 will develop glaucoma.
