Glaucoma; The Second Leading Cause of Blindness in Nigeria.

Health Tips

Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye’s optic nerve and gets worse over time. It’s often linked to a buildup of pressure inside your eye. Glaucoma tends to be inherited and may not show up until later in life.

The increased pressure, called intraocular pressure, can damage the optic nerve, which transmits images to your brain. If the damage continues, glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss. Without treatment, glaucoma can cause total permanent blindness within a few years.

Glaucoma is a disease of the eye in which fluid pressure within the eye rises. This eye disease can lead to blindness if left untreated in a patient. Statistics have shown that no fewer than 1.8 million Nigerians above 40 years suffer from glaucoma with almost 360,000 of them blind in both eyes.
