What is glaucoma?

Glaucoma is one of the most common causes of blindness and comprises a group of diseases that cause progressive and irreversible damage to the optic nerve. This structure is key to vision since, through it, the images captured by the retina (converted into nerve impulses) are transmitted to the brain so that it can interpret them and generate vision.

Visual impairment

Glaucoma is a chronic disease caused by the early death of retinal ganglion cells, whose axons form the optic nerve.

As a consequence, the optic nerve loses its functionality. If the disease is not treated in time, the patient’s field of vision is reduced.
